2019 Brexit Implications for US Companies with UK Subsidiaries: What You Need to Know Now

Chicago Office and Webinar

Program Overview:

The United Kingdom has until March 2019, to reach an agreement on Brexit. Under existing EU law, all 27 countries in the EU must consent to any agreement. What should US companies with subsidiaries in the UK and Northern Ireland need to be concerned about and what affirmative steps should these companies be currently evaluating if a deal is not reached by this deadline?

Join other senior executives from the healthcare, financial services, technology, and life sciences industries for this informative seminar. Our international panel of experts from RSM and Quarles & Brady will describe the current state of Brexit, an update on the timeline, and discuss issues businesses should start preparing for now, including tax, IP, data protection, and labor. We will also provide an update on current negotiations and review a case study. You do not want to miss this engaging discussion on the risk considerations that companies should be aware of and the effects on your businesses.
