Dechert Partner, and co-chair of the International Trade practice, Miriam Gonzalez, speaks to BBC Business Live following the news that the UK government is seeking to negotiate an arrangement for the financial sector with Germany post-Brexit. Ms. Gonzalez highlights the current challenges for the business community and EU negotiators alike, who need clearly defined substance from the UK government to adequately progress Brexit negotiations.

Prior to joining Dechert, Ms. Gonzalez previously served for seven years as a Senior Member of the Cabinet for EU External Relations Commissioners Chris Patten and Benita Ferrero-Waldner, where she had responsibility for trade policy as well as EU relations with the Middle East, the U.S. and Latin America. At Dechert, her team supports trade negotiations between the EU, UK and third country governments, with particular emphasis on the Brexit negotiations between the EU and the UK.
