Brexit

With the UK's decision, by a narrow margin, to exit Europe, many of our clients will be pondering what lies ahead for them. 

While it is a period of uncertainty for us all, the exit process will take, potentially at least, a number of years to conclude and during which time we will be able to establish how we move forward. For now, whether you are a business, individual or institution and whether UK based or from elsewhere in the World, the team at Hewitsons is available to talk to you about your needs including how the Brexit decision might affect you.

Whilst the vote result may not have been the preferred result for some in the UK, Hewitsons continues to have close European connections through our network of international law firms, LawExchange. In that way we can provide an international dimension when advising on legal issues such as in regard to employment, personal wealth, property, agriculture, corporate, technology and transport.

Please get in contact if you have any questions at all arising out of the referendum vote.

I recommend him highly."

That was not to be the case, which confirms that you had tied up any possible loose ends before handing it over to David Wells. This sale has gone well...Thank you."

"Valerie was absolutely fantastic in her legal strategy & planning & response times with opposing counsel which was the Chairman of the other firm. When this Chairman was not responsive on many occasions - Valerie kept her cool and responded back in an extremely cool & logical manner.

This case was settled quickly and amicably by her"
