No-deal planning - Guidance from Hogan Lovells

The risk of no-deal Brexit is still a live one. As the political wrangling continues in Parliament our advice remains: prepare for the worst, hope for the best.

Many companies developed no-deal contingency plans in advance of the original Brexit deadline, including securing alternative transport routes, stockpiling products and moving licences to holders in the EU27. Those plans should be revisited and updated.

Some companies ran out of time to implement all the actions identified, so now is the time to prioritise what still needs to be done to safeguard business operations as far as possible in the event of a no-deal exit.

The documents here give you some practical guidance on what you need to consider in your no-deal planning. These guides can be used as a starting point and you can also refer to the variety of resources available in our Brexit Toolkit and across our Brexit Hub. For more tailored advice on any aspect of no-deal planning or other Brexit advice, please contact your usual Hogan Lovells team or a member of our Brexit Taskforce or email brexit@hoganlovells.com.

Brexit clauses

There has been a lot said about “Brexit clauses”, a contractual provision which triggers some change in rights/obligations as a result of a defined Brexit-related event. Our note helps you identify if these clauses could help in your no-deal planning.
