The UK-EU transition period will end on 31 December 2020. The Law Society has shared a guide to help you prepare now, including a 10-step checklist.
The UK is leaving the single market, and the EU lawyers’ directives and EU laws will no longer apply to the England and Wales qualified solicitors. This means that there will be significant changes for individual solicitors and firms, whether an agreement is reached on the UK-EU future relationship or not.
We recommend that solicitors and firms continue (or begin now) to prepare for the end of the transition period.
