The British withdrawal from the EU has been extended and we are scheduled to leave Thursday 31 October 2019. As the clock ticks down to Brexit many issues will need to be addressed and several key dates will pass.

Our teams will address many of the issues surrounding Brexit, the laws affected by brexit and any potential legal advice needed in the wake of the decisions being made.

Brexit key dates

June – July – Formal resignation and leadership race

The contest will formally get underway after she relinquishes her position on June 7, and the party is hoping to have a new leader by July.

June 20 – 21 – EU summit
Taking stock of Brexit progress, or lack of it.

July 2 – New European Parliament meets
The UKs failure to leave the EU on schedule means that Britihs MEP’s will return to Brussels.

Mid to late July
New prime minister

Possibly the biggest factor determining what kind of Brexit the UK seeks

None of the MPs standing to replace Mrs May wants either to reverse the Brexit decision or to hold a second referendum. There exists the possibility that a new prime minister could seek to renegotiate the less substantive part of Mrs May’s deal: a non-binding political declaration, which sets out the future framework for the UK-EU trade relationship.

October 31 – The new deadline – Brexit day?

No deal Brexit could take place. By this point the UK must choose to ratify the exit treaty, opt for a no deal or cancel Brexit.

Beyond Brexit

31 December 2020 (midnight) – the end of the proposed transition period

30 June 2021 – deadline for EU citizens to make their applications for “settled” status
