With 2020 upon us, a new decade began where the last left off, with Brexit.

Brexit has now happened, but businesses may not yet feel like much has changed. Hohan Lovells recent Brexit 2020 webinars have kept you up to date with developments so far and provided you with guidance on preparing for changes ahead. You can access those webinar recordings and materials below.


Beyond Brexit: What’s next?

Our upcoming webinars will consider what will happen during the transition period and beyond, the principal issues for key industries, negotiations around specific law and regulation, and potential divergence between the UK and the EU.

Based on your feedback from our first three webinars of 2020, we are adding new episodes to the series, with more in-depth analysis of particular issues. As mentioned on our last webinar, the next episode will be looking at tech mergers and acquisitions and will be followed by a closer look at cross-border litigation and data protection, whilst keeping you informed on the latest developments. All the details are below and you can register to attend now.



Webinar 5: Brexit effect: UK Budget takeaways and Brexit’s impact on cross-border litigation

Thursday, 12 March, 15:30-16:30 (GMT)

The day after the budget, the first from this government, our Public Law & Policy team will highlight some of the takeaways for post-Brexit Britain, business and transactions.

Our Litigation colleagues will then take a more in-depth view of Brexit’s impact on disputes, including governing law, enforcement of judgments, and a practical approach to drafting disputes clauses.


Webinar 6: Brexit here & there: UK/EU negotiations update and the future of data protection law

Wednesday, 25 March, 15:30-16:30 (GMT)

With trade negotiations between the UK and EU kicking off on 3 March, our International Trade team will look at how both sides have begun and what the latest reports indicate for business.

Our Privacy and Cybersecurity team will then consider the future of the UK legal framework for data protection and its potential impact on international data flows, adequacy for transfers from the EU and the role of the UK Information Commissioner’s Office in the context of the ‘One stop Shop’ and Binding Corporate Rules approvals.
