LONDON, August 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Inline Policy, the consultancy for innovative and fast-growing businesses looking to engage with Government has launched a specialist Brexit Advisory Unit following the result of the recent referendum.

The Brexit Advisory Unit will work with organisations to advise them on how the impact of Brexit will affect their business, including policy and regulatory implications. The 10 strong team will work with clients to engage with the Government and relevant policymakers, ensuring that their voice is heard to help shape the negotiation and transition process.

The unit will be headed up by William Bain: EU expert, former shadow minister, and Parliamentarian. William brings extensive knowledge of key economic, strategic, and regulatory matters having been a member of the Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee, with particular interests in industrial and financial services policies. The team has considerable experience across Government, business and commercial activity in the UK and EU with specialised regulatory expertise in London and Brussels.  

William Bain, said: "The next few years will see significant change in how UK businesses trade, operate, invest, employ people, and use data, as the UK prepares to depart from the EU and build new relationships in Europe and around the world.

"The process of leaving the EU could mean that the future of passporting for UK financial services businesses across the Single Market area will be on the table for debate. We also wait to see what the climate for jobs, trade and investment will be in the UK once the new journey outside of EU membership begins."

Shomik Panda, Inline's Managing Director, said: "Inline's Brexit Advisory Unit will work with businesses to help steer them through this time of significant change in our economy. UK businesses now have a unique opportunity to help shape a post-Brexit regulatory environment that will promote innovation, jobs and growth. We will work alongside our clients to ensure they are in the best possible position to be part of the conversation with the key decision makers."
