Brexit means Article 50 or does it?

15 September, 2016

In an article published in the Butterworths Journal of International Banking and Finance Law Richard Nowinski  examines three key issues relating to Article 50 TEU: whether the UK government in exercising the Crown’s prerogative powers can give notice of withdrawal from the EU without seeking Parliamentary approval; the voting procedure within the EU on the treaty under which the UK will leave the EU; and whether the future relationship between the UK and EU will result in a “mixed agreement” requiring unanimity of all Member States.

The Legal 500 United Kingdom 2016

The 2016 edition of The Legal 500 has been published. We are delighted with the results. No fewer than 9 members of chambers have been ranked as leading practitioners in the fields of commercial litigation, banking, insolvency, chancery, property, intellectual property and public international law.

The Legal 500 is also highly complimentary about our clerking team headed by Justin Brown who ‘bends over backwards to help balance client needs and demands’. His team is described as ‘approachable and friendly and works hard to help solicitors find the  best alternative barrister when the chosen counsel is busy’.
