Webinar 4: High-tech heaven? The prospects for technology and tech investment in post-Brexit Britain
Wednesday, 26 February, 15:30-16:30 (GMT)

Could big changes be on the way in UK domestic policy and could the UK's new relationship with the EU and the rest of the world see the emergence of a "high-tech heaven" in the UK?

On this webinar speakers from Hogan Lovells and Craig Melson, programme manager for techUK, discussed the latest news on Brexit and the UK's negotiations with the EU and the prospects of global trade deals (including with the United States and Japan) as well as the UK government's domestic policy agenda. We looked at the implications for high-tech sectors (including fintech, digital health, and autotech) from the perspective of tech investors and deals in the tech sector.

We discussed how to structure deals to take advantage of opportunities and manage risks and explored potential changes to antitrust and competition regulation post-Brexit.
