Invitation to attend upcoming seminar on Brexit

Navigating a New World: Brexit’s Potential Impact on Business and Trade on Both Sides of the Channel

The upcoming British exit (“Brexit”) from the European Union will have a significant impact on businesses operating on both sides of the Channel. What are the likely practical implications for companies trading in France and the UK? What steps can you consider taking now to mitigate business risk during the withdrawal negotiations and how can multinationals based in France and/or the UK prepare for the aftershock of Brexit?

These are some of the issues that our legal experts will address during a joint roundtable seminar with international law firm Faegre Baker Daniels LLP* that will take place on March 28, 2017, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at Le Prisme in Lyon.

We hope that you can join us for what will be a very interesting discussion.

This session will be delivered in both French and English via simultaneous translation.

The seminar will be followed by a cocktail reception.
