Brexit legal advice
Following the referendum on 23 June 2016, in which 51.9% of United Kingdom (UK) voters decided to leave the European Union (EU), the UK government invoked Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty on 29 March 2017, giving two years' notice to terminate the UK's membership of the EU. The process of the UK exiting the EU is known as Brexit.
Take a look at our interactive Brexit video where Rajiv Malhotra (solicitor, dispute resolution) covers the general aspects and Chris Brazier (senior associate, employment law and immigration specialist) on settled status, the new immigration procedure for EU nationals to remain in Britain.
The EU has now agreed to delay Brexit until 31 January 2020 at the latest. The decision to delay came after a meeting of the EU27 ambassadors.
At time of writing, a draft withdrawal agreement has been agreed to by the UK cabinet and the remaining 27 EU member states. In March 2019, MPs voted against leaving the EU without a deal and in favour of seeking an extension to Article 50, which delayed the 29 March deadline.
