The Brexit train rumbles on. In 2016, the EU and the UK embarked on one of the most politically sensitive and legally complex international negotiations of modern times: those relating to the UK's withdrawal from the European Union.

The negotiations focus on two main agreements. First, a withdrawal agreement on the terms of the UK's separation from the EU, and second, an agreement on the future relationship between the EU and the UK. Negotiation of the withdrawal agreement is ongoing and until they conclude the UK remains in the EU.

Baker Botts lawyers in Europe, the UK and the United States are closely monitoring the negotiations and their potential impact across a range of disciplines.

This page will provide up to date analysis on the implications of the negotiations and how they could affect you and your business.
