The UK has left the EU, single market and customs union. This impacts how solicitors and law firms provide services and their establishment within the EU, the EEA and Switzerland: they are now subject to 31 different regulatory regimes, one for each jurisdiction. It also has consequences for solicitors travelling to the EU on business; immigration to and from the EU; civil and commercial judicial cooperation; EU legal professional privilege; practice areas such as intellectual property and family law; anti-money laundering; and VAT.
