Brexit and Its Effect on Regulation and Transactions in the Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Industries

The UK has left the EU on January 31, 2020, implicating substantial and unprecedented consequences for pharmaceutical and medical device companies exporting to, or from, the UK and for those with supply chains operating between the UK and the EU, including those shipping products to Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK.

The impact on the pharmaceutical and medical device industry is enormous, as it not only concerns UK companies that trade products or services with the EU or the U.S., but also has an effect on any EU business with activities on the UK market as well as on non-EU businesses, including U.S.-companies, using the UK as hub for their export to the EU.

Approaching the topic from the EU and UK perspectives, members of our Trade, EU Regulatory and M&A teams will discuss in this webinar:

  • Driving forces in the UK negotiations with the EU
  • EU regulatory issues
  • Impact on transactions
