Brexit

The decision of the British people to leave the European Union will result in the most significant change to the UK's legal framework for generations. We help individuals and businesses work through the complexities of Brexit.

"Outstanding" - Legal 500

As the situation develops, we provide our clients and international colleagues with practical advice, guidance and risk management solutions.

“We will design our immigration system to ensure that we are able to control the numbers of people who come here from the EU. In future, therefore, the Free Movement Directive will no longer apply and the migration of EU nationals will be subject to UK law”
Government Brexit White Paper

Brexit uncertainty affects everyone – from private individuals to large multi-national corporations. The final outcome will impact all aspects of the way Britain is governed.

EU nationals and their family members are particularly concerned about long-term UK immigration arrangements, as freedom of movement rights begin to fall away. We advise on EU citizen’s rights and we help businesses develop an immigration strategy for the UK’s new place in the world.

Over the course of the coming months the Government will have to develop and implement a policy for post-Brexit immigration control. This policy arc will affect EU and non-EU citizens, individuals and businesses. Magrath Sheldrick will be at the forefront of Brexit thinking – providing innovative and practical guidance and solutions.

Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme

There are a lot of “updates” circulating around the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.  All similarly light on detail because, put simply, there is limited detail.  However, there are some things we do know, some we know to a degree, and some we can hazard an educated guess at (maybe). Normally I’d wait for the detail…
