Imminent Brexit Issues to Consider

Some of the key Brexit-related focus areas we are advising clients on in the context of corporate and finance transactions include:

  • Transaction due diligence - understanding the Brexit-related risks of ongoing and future transactions
  • Ensuring contractual continuity
  • ‘Brexit proofing’ contracts in relation to:
    • Governing law
    • Enforcement
    • Termination - termination rights/force majeure/Material Adverse Change
    • Financing - financial covenants
    • Trading
    • Warranties/Indemnities
    • Closing conditions
    • Substantive provisions
