BLM's Brexit Brunch in partnership with Management Today
BLM has partnered with media powerhouse Management Today, to bring together industry leaders and former Conservative culture communications and creative industries minister Ed Vaizey at The Shard, London to debate Brexit's business impacts. With the 'transition period' set to end on 31 December 2020, the Conservative government now buoyed by a substantial majority to deliver Brexit this year.
Alistair Kinley, director of policy and government affairs at BLM, noted 'What we have done so far are the easy first steps. Moving the whole economy for completion by the end of the year is a big ask....As David Frost, the chief Brexit negotiator, has said, we should take inspiration from the fact that the original 1957 Treaty of Rome was negotiated and signed in under nine months. Surely we can do as well, with all the advantages we have now?’.
Stuart Evans, head of commercial litigation, London commenting on the current uplift in insolvency activity added: "We have seen instances of business failures being blamed on Brexit, but do the statistics back it up and is this a sign that Brexit will cause a spike on the insolvency graph?'.
