The UK-EU future partnership – legal services sector

1 August 2019

We have outlined an ideal UK-EU trading relationship for legal services post-Brexit and reviewed other options, including a free trade agreement and trading on WTO terms.

The paper summarises the current state of the UK-EU relationship as it affects the legal sector, and explores through case studies how different future relationships will affect English and Welsh lawyers and firms.

All outcomes are explored in relation to market access to ensure the continued success of the UK legal sector.

We conclude in the paper that only an association agreement can adequately deliver on legal services, and that the openness of England and Wales for EEA lawyers should be maintained.

We have published guidance on the potential effects on our members in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
