A month on from the EU referendum, the UK business world is still trying to work out what it actually means in practice. Whilst the outlook has changed, this is not 2008. There is no world banking crisis. Money remains cheap - and may get cheaper still. There is business to be done - and business is still being done.

We are advising clients on the implications and opportunities of Brexit - the effect on UK legislation, the impact on current contractual arrangements and a wide range of other issues. We are also reminding ourselves that there is life outside the EU - both figuratively and literally. In this issue you can read about an event that we hosted recently to assist Yorkshire businesses break into the lucrative Latin American market.

Whatever twists and turns are yet to come, we are here to support our clients and friends - do please get in touch with your views and your questions.
