“The overall impacts of Brexit in the long term prove difficult to measure without clear guidelines and a deal in place.
“The UK will ultimately be responsible for managing and securing its own trade deals and though there are clear opportunities, these will have to be balanced alongside the short term risks which will be realised shortly after the UK’s official departure.
“One thing that the last decade has taught us is that despite the hugely disruptive force of the financial crisis, the UK economy has been incredibly resilient. It is vital that the challenges we now face are tackled head on and that new opportunities that emerge are also taken advantage of. The UK is a global powerhouse and we need to stay positive and work together to ensure this remains to be the case.”
“We are delighted with these new senior appointments. We are committed to developing our national teams and London plays an important part in that investment plan. I am confident that both Debbie and Winston will be great assets to our team at Irwin Mitchell and will help us to fulfil our ambition of providing first-class advice to clients in today’s fast moving business environment.”
“Cebr advises some of the world’s most prominent companies and has a superb reputation for providing insightful economic analysis, award-winning forecasting and decisive business advice based on innovative research.
“Over the last few years, it has established itself as a go-to consultancy for unbiased and well-informed Brexit commentary and it is behind some of the UK’s most discussed Brexit-focused research.
“They were the ideal partner to work with as we look to ensure we are able to support our clients correctly as they prepare for Brexit.”
“We have been hugely impressed with FLI and I am confident the organisation will play a big role in helping us meet our international growth aspirations. This is a key area for the firm and we are extremely excited to be joining one of the world’s most credible networks.
“FLI will not only help increase the amount of incoming work we generate from overseas, it will also offer a wide spread of jurisdictional coverage with firms of a size capable of supporting most queries that our client base could require.”
