Brexit and its consequences for life sciences


Since the result of last month’s referendum Bristows has been considering the impact leaving the EU will have on our life sciences clients and clients in other sectors. While the full extent of the UK’s vote to leave the EU will not be known for some time, work has begun in earnest to consider the implications.
Bristows has published a series of articles looking at the impact of the vote to leave. These articles range from assessing the potential effects of Brexit on:
• The UPC and the role of UK following the referendum;
• Competition law in particular looking at merger control, cartels and investigations, procurement and competition litigation;
• Data protection law including preparing for the General Data Protection Regulation;
• Copyright law and the possible longer term considerations the UK’s exit could have on this area of law in the UK;
• Trade mark and design protection and considering what will happen to EU trade mark and design protection.
Further articles will follow in the weeks and months ahead. For a full update on our analysis please click here.
