Brexit Next Steps


Though Brexit may seem far removed from the strategic concerns of many of those in the construction and real estate industries, for those large construction operations, developers and suppliers that are either already in the UK/EU or expanding their operations into those areas, every development is worth tracking. In Next Steps toward Brexit, The EU sets out its stall for the looming withdrawal negotiations with the UK, Pillsbury attorney Tim Wright discusses the European Commission’s recent publication of its Brexit mandate, which indicates a clear focus on “citizens’ rights, the financial settlement and new external borders” and the Commission’s chief Brexit negotiator’s plan to “pay great attention to Ireland during the first phase of negotiations.” The EC’s mandate is just one of the many Brexit developments that global players in all industries will need to keep an eye on as the situation unfolds.
