Brad Richards in Bloomberg Big Law Business: Brexit Anxiety Gives Law Firms Chance to Prove Worth to Clients

12/14/2018

Bloomberg Big Law Business quoted Haynes and Boone, LLP Administrative Partner of the London office Brad Richards in an article about how lawyers are helping clients navigate the uncertainty around the U.K.’s looming exit from the European Union.

Here is an excerpt:

The parliamentary vote scuttled this week on U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit plan only raised more questions for clients doing business in Britain.

The deal would have allowed the U.K. to leave the EU in March 2019 with provisions in place around tough issues like trade and the Northern Ireland border, but May is now reportedly returning to the drawing board with the EU to rework aspects of the deal. She also faces a no-confidence vote in Parliament on Wednesday.

Haynes and Boone London administrative partner Brad Richards told Bloomberg Law the trouble is that even with the Brexit deadline looming, no one knows what the split will look like.
