Contingency Planning for Businesses Impacted by Brexit

On May 1, attorneys from Fredrikson & Byron’s International practice and UK law firm Walker Morris provided a general update on the Brexit process and a discussion of the practical issues companies should identify and put into place and an overview of the potential business opportunities presented by this transition.  The program addressed:

  • Brexit process, possible outcomes and consequential changes to the regulatory environment across the UK and EU
  • What possible Brexit outcomes may mean for companies doing business with the UK and for business between the UK and the remaining EU states
  • Supply chain issues and how the customs, import and export process may be affected
  • Recommendations for dealing with data, intellectual property protection and employee immigration
  • Issues affecting regulated sectors, such as food and agricultural, financial services and medical/technology


This program was co-hosted by Global Minnesota and Minnesota Trade Office.
