Regulatory law affects all businesses. Osborne Clarke’s Regulatory Outlook is designed to help in-house lawyers, compliance professionals and directors navigate the landscape of business regulation in the UK. For each of the 16 areas of business regulation covered, we highlight the issues that are most likely to affect your business in 2018, whatever sector you operate in, as well as dates that you might want to put into your diary.
This edition of the Regulatory Outlook has a special focus on Brexit. With less than a year until the UK formally leaves the EU, Brexit continues to dominate the political and news agendas. Yet the shape of the future trading relationship between the UK and EU is still far from clear.
Looking across the 16 areas of business regulation, we address two of the questions that we are asked most frequently by clients: how will Brexit impact on the regulatory environment that our business operates in? What does that mean for our cross-border trade? While the answers vary across the different regimes, there are some common themes, and much that businesses can be doing now to prepare.
