Brexit: the impact on commercial contracts

The UK’s decision to leave the European Union is likely to impact on many of the commercial contracts that organisations have in place, but until the UK negotiates its exit, there will remain a great deal of uncertainty on what the actual impact will be.

So while for the time being it is business as usual, there are actions you can take now by way of basic planning that will make it easier when the impact becomes clearer:

  • Ensure all of your contracts are identified and located so they can be analysed for Brexit impact.
  • Conduct high level Brexit reviews to identify contracts that might be impacted, especially high risk/priority ones.
  • Consider the strategic options for affected contracts and what steps you might take to mitigate the impact when the time comes.
