London Breakfast Seminar: Brexit and EU competition law; a road map for UK counsel

Join Citco on Tuesday, 23 May 2017 to hear about guest speaker Robert Bell’s views on likely a UK merger control landscape post-Brexit.

The Brexit referendum result in June last year created many uncertainties for the British economy and continues to do so.

In this Breakfast Seminar our speaker Robert Bell will focus his remarks on what he sees will be the likely UK merger control landscape post-Brexit and will in particular cover:

  • Will companies be faced by increased regulatory scrutiny for their deals post Brexit?
  • What change in EU and UK merger legislation are we likely to see?
  • How is the UK competition regulator likely to handle its increased workload?
  • What strategies should companies adopt to expedite deal clearance in a post Brexit world?

There will also be a representative of the Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU) available to answer any questions.
