'Brexit' - but it's Business as Usual

As widely publicised, the recent referendum in the UK on the question of whether the UK should remain in the EU came down in favour of Britain exiting the EU – so called ‘Brexit’.

However, we would like to reassure clients that it will be ‘business as usual’ for us and we will continue to provide the same services as before in the EU.

While exit from the EU will be far from immediate, and there is uncertainty as to the future relationship between the UK and the EU, with mention being made of the two extremes of the so-called ‘Norwegian’ model and the ‘World Trade Organisation’ model, one thing that remains certain is that WP Thompson, with its long-established European offices in Munich, London and Liverpool, and multinational body of professionals, will continue to provide its high quality pan-European services and advice to its worldwide client base in relation to European IP rights.

Please see here for our Q&A section on this topic. 

Further details on all of the above will be publicised as they become available, but if you have any specific queries or concerns please contact your usual WP Thompson advisor, or email us on munich@wpt.co.uk,liverpool@wpt.co.uk or london@wpt.co.uk.
