Aberdeen law firm Stronachs to offer post-Brexit navigation tips
18 February 2021
A leading Aberdeen-based law firm is encouraging fellow local businesses to start the new year by getting to grips with operating in a post-Brexit world.
Stronachs LLP is gearing up to stage an online webinar entitled: "Beyond Brexit: Revolution & Evolution” to examine how businesses can made sense of the biggest shake-up of corporate life for a generation, and move forward against a backdrop of change.
The announcement follows hot on the heels of the recent publication of Stronachs LLP’s: "Guide to Brexit” which offers legal guidance on key issues facing businesses, and points to consider when looking ahead. Complimentary to this, the February 23rd webinar will feature a range of speakers and panellists from within the Stronachs team and the wider North East business community who will discuss issues pertinent to key local sectors and use online knowledge sharing as a fundamental tool in navigating the new corporate era.
Commenting on plans for the February event, Stronachs LLP’s Head of Energy Partner Ewan Neilson said: "Businesses will be heavily impacted by new ways in how we do many things. This is the first major change in 48 years and numerous aspects of how we do business across every sector will be affected, from the structure and nature of our relationship with the rest of Europe through the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement and other related agreements and arrangements to different business sectors.
"This will have significant effect in particular on immigration and freedom of movement, employment and data management, state aid, public procurement, origin of goods, border control, agriculture and fishing. A correct and careful handling and application in a post- Brexit world will be even more critical for business.
"Businesses need to look at the current state of flux as a beginning rather than an end and we are now working towards circumstances where businesses will be able to plan with a greater degree of certainty. There is still much which can be done and it is important that people shouldn’t feel that they’ve left it too late.
"This webinar will bring together some important strands into one, accessible online format which facilitates knowledge in a COVID-19 safe way and we look forward to welcoming as diverse a range of business representatives as possible.”
