Aims and Objectives

BREXIT is one of the biggest challenges that the UK – and, therefore, UK plc – will face over the next two years, and this working group helps to gather legal input, trends and strategies around the topic.
Together, they discuss the practical implications of BREXIT and provide guidance and best practice advice for Franco-British businesses.
The BREXIT Forum gathers various leaders responsible for Brexit from member companies, large corporates and big firms, including the 'big four'. The outcomes of the BREXIT Forum are shared with members through our magazine INFO, but also in newsletters and through social media.
