Welcome to our Summer 2019 edition of International Newsbrief, where we give an update (in a ‘reporting from behind the lines’ style) on legal developments in the UK that may be of interest to our international friends. We continue to be in a state of flux in the UK at a macro level, with August’s parliamentary recess providing a momentary breather before more Brexit-related drama in September. Let’s hope there is an industrious ‘back to school’ vibe in the air.
In the meantime, the UK remains open for business, and in this issue we explore some of the ways in which we have seen that in practice. Andrew Dodds, new banking partner, discusses how the UK remains a jurisdiction of choice for contract drafting and dispute resolution, Jackie Penlington highlights the plight of EU nationals remaining in the UK and ‘braving the Brexodus’, whilst Kate Lewis discusses the latest holiday phenomenon – divorce tourism and the prevalence of London as a ‘destination’ of choice. This edition is packed with other content too, and we have also provided links to our Brexit materials, including a recent Brexit update by Gustaf Duhs.
Happy reading and, as ever, if you would like to discuss any of the issues raised in this issue then please do get in touch.
