ARLINGTON, Va., May 23, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bloomberg Law's Big Law Business, a leading website featuring breaking news, videos, and contributed commentary that highlight trends and developments shaping the legal industry, today released a video developed with Dechert LLP focusing on key issues that companies need to be aware of relating to Brexit. The video, "Brexit: Are You Prepared," is on Big Law Business and can be found at http://on.bna.com/EJ32300ldsM.
The June 23rd UK referendum focused on the fate of the UK's relationship with the EU is quickly approaching. Companies operating, or having commercial interests, in the UK are considering what Brexit could mean for their business. Implications of a potential Brexit vote are the main focus of the video.
"Brexit is one of the most predictable, considerable risks that exists on the whole for British industry and service providers," noted Miriam Gonzalez, co-chair of Dechert's International Trade and Government Regulation practice, who focuses specifically on international and EU trade law policy.
"Multinational companies are a core part of our global audience for Big Law Business," said Scott Mozarsky, President, Cross Platform Businesses at Bloomberg BNA. "Our mission is to provide valuable content to our audience on key issues impacting their businesses and the Brexit referendum fits squarely within this realm."
In the video, Gonzalez and Andrew Hood, a Senior Director with Dechert who was previously Legal Advisor to the UK Prime Minister, discuss the importance of preparing for a Brexit vote and evaluating the risks and opportunities that may lie ahead. They focus includes on how to interact with investors and shareholders, understanding the market in which a business operates, and understanding the impact of the European legal system on a business.
"There is a lot you can do by preparing now," said Hood. "I can't think of a more complicated negotiation that faces companies than the event of a Brexit position."
