In this report, we explain some of the key legal implications associated with the United Kingdom leaving the European Union (EU) without a deal for future relations being agreed between themselves. This note assumes that, in the event of no agreement being reached, the UK and EU will trade on the basis of World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules. Any reference to “no deal” in this report should be understood as being a reference to trading on WTO rules in place of a formal deal between the EU and the United Kingdom. This note aims to provide clients with a degree of reassurance amidst the prevailing uncertainty that the prospect of a “no deal” Brexit brings. The topics covered include (i) banking and financial services, (ii) tax, (iii) contracts and enforceability of judgements, (iv) employment law, (v) data protection and (vi) health care regulation.
