EU Referendum: Brexit

Read the Shepherd and Wedderburn bulletin to find out  what the implications of a Brexit might be

29 May 2015

On 28 May 2015, the newly elected Conservative government published the EU Referendum Bill.  On 17 December 2015, the EU Referendum Act received Royal Assent. This legislation paves the way for an in/out referendum on the UK’s continued membership of the European Union to be held before the end of 2017. This will be the first time the UK has been asked whether it wishes to remain a part of the EU since 1975. In this bulletin, we look at some of the implications of an exit from the EU for our clients.
