Bart Van Vooren is quoted in Legal Week regarding the potential decrease in work for law firms in the UK following Brexit. He says, “A general impression is that small and medium-sized enterprises don’t have enough resources to prepare, while our clients – large worldwide pharmaceutical companies – have invested millions into this. Many have done their homework, and many have pulled the trigger.” He adds, one big issue is that much of the guidance given by the European Commission is highly politicized and thus, very inflexible. He said: “They can’t be seen in their advice to be negotiating a no-deal Brexit or a deal in anyway, so they’re having to be very strict and inflexible in their advice – and that’s been a massive headache.”
