BREXIT. Do Not Panic! There is remedy and opportunity ahead.

Brexit would almost certainly have a short to medium term negative impact on international investors looking to deploy capital into UK but also on British investors and developers seeking to invest or trade with Romania and practically all of the remaining 27 members of the EU. What is likely to happen – an end to free movement of people, goods and services as we know it, which could ultimately also affect the cost of doing business and impact the market in general. However, what is likely to have the biggest impact on investors and developers, is the resolve of the UK economy, and any external perceptions of its strength.

This brief seeks to point-out what would likely happen in some key areas of legal practice in the event Art. 50 negotiations are triggered.
