Editor's Note

With just a month to go until the end of the Brexit Transition Period, many questions remain unanswered in terms of the UK's on-going relationship with the EU. A free trade agreement which would allow for tariff-free trade between the UK and EU appears some way off, with "serious issues" remaining unresolved – specifically fisheries and state aid laws – and neither side appearing willing to back down.


Understanding International Trade

We have published a guide to some of the key areas of international trade law that will affect businesses buying and selling goods or services into or out of the UK. Understanding the relevant rules and regulations will be vital for such businesses once the UK has departed the EU's single market and customs union at the end of 2020.


UK Government publishes its plans for the UK/EU border

The Government has published its updated operating model for the UK/EU border, providing more detail on how it sees imports and exports moving between the UK and the EU once it has left the bloc’s single market and customs union.


Brexit and Data Protection checklist

Data protection is a key battleground in determining the EU and UK future relationship beyond the end of the transition period, when the UK will be treated as a 'third country'. Businesses that have adapted to comply with GDPR will now need to assess their compliance with both the EU and UK data protection regimes.


Family Law and the Brexit Transition Period

With the Brexit transition period due to end on 31 December, there are a number of implications for those contemplating divorce who have connections to another EU Member State, or where either of a child's parents live in another EU state.


Brexit and the Life Sciences sector

One of the sectors particularly affected by Brexit is the life sciences industry. Notwithstanding the additional regulatory demands of COVID-19, the MHRA has produced a series of guidance documents, some still in consultation form, setting out the framework for how medicines and medical devices will be regulated.


Brexit and Data Protection: Which regime will apply?

Businesses may find themselves having to comply with three different data protection regimes after 1 January 2021: the 'UK GDPR', the actual GDPR and also potentially GDPR as it stands on 31 December 2020
