Snap Brexit Webinar: Your guide to the latest developments

The Supreme Court has found unanimously that the power to prorogue Parliament is limited in law by other, fundamental constitutional principles, including the constitutional function of Parliament both to legislate and to scrutinise the Government. The Government cannot suspend Parliament, and thus frustrate its constitutional role, without lawful justification. 

The Hogan Lovells Brexit team ran a snap webinar to help you understand the implications of the judgment, the current legal and procedural position in relation to Brexit, as well as to consider the practical response your business needs to take.

•How does private sector and public sector interaction work in the US?
•What are the opportunities for our clients to engage in those conversations now in the UK? Why should they be engaging?

Webinar: Brexit, what do EU think?

With just over a month to go until Brexit, a deal remains elusive. Despite moves in the UK Parliament to avoid a no-deal Brexit, that remains the default outcome unless a deal or an extension is agreed with the EU and approved by Parliament. Our webinar will be presented by our colleagues in various EU27 countries. They will be providing insights on how government and industry is preparing in their jurisdictions. We will also shine a spotlight on the recent case of Canary Wharf (BP4) T1 Limited and others v European Medicines Agency.
