With the June 23 referendum on Britain’s
membership of the European Union creeping nearer, counsel are
beginning to analyse the practical implications of a possible
Brexit. Beyond the potential impact to the UK's economy, a slew
of legal concerns are emerging.
If British citizens vote for a Brexit, much will depend on
the adopted model. If the UK were to join the European Economic
Area the country could continue to take advantage of the
passport system. But under a customs union or UK-EU free trade
agreements models, the UK would have freedom to regulate its
own financial services sector.
But despite this uncertainty over format – as well
as outcome – IFLR decided to poll readers on their
biggest concerns regarding a possible Brexit.
Vote now on the right hand side of IFLR’s home page.
The results will be published in the May issue of IFLR. If you
would like to arrange an off-the-record chat to explain your
view, please contact Tom Young at email@example.com
