Law firm unveils dedicated Brexit advice microsite

The microsite www.hewitsons.com/brexit contains expert information for local, national and international businesses from a wide range of industries.

It covers subjects including commercial agreements, data protection, immigration, procurement law and UK agriculture. Where there are areas of uncertainty, it contains practical advice about whether to adopt a ‘wait and see’ approach or whether useful preparation can be undertaken now.

The site, which launched just days before the draft Withdrawal Agreement was published, also features articles about specific topics of interest relating to Brexit, including a timely note on the legal process required to instigate a ‘People’s Vote’ drafted by Legal 500 Hall of Fame litigator Dominic Hopkins.

Emma Shipp, partner and head of business services, said: “The situation regarding Brexit is changing rapidly. Yet, despite all the uncertainty still surrounding this process, one thing is clear: if businesses have not already started preparing, they should do so now.”

The microsite aims to highlight and explain the key points businesses should be considering before the UK leaves the European Union on March 29.

“Expert advice can then be sought from our team of industry specialists in relation to specific areas of concern,” said Ms Shipp. “With teams specialising in all major areas of law, Hewitsons is well placed to help businesses overcome obstacles and capitalise on the opportunities that may arise from Brexit.”

Hewitsons has offices in Milton Keynes, Northampton, London and Cambridge and has close European connections through LawExchange International, its network of international law firms. Through LEI, which Hewitsons founded in 1994, the firm provides an international viewpoint from trusted advisers.
