24 June 2021, 16:00 hrs - 8th Deloitte Brexit Lecture – Webcast: "Brexit the Future of Europe"


As in our previous lecture in November 2020, we will shed light on the post-Brexit situation in the upcoming webcast.

Some time has passed since the United Kingdom left the EU, i.e. in February 2020. Unfortunately, in the meantime not all open questions could be clarified.

Issues much discussed in the press, such as the Trade and Cooperation Agreement, which formally came into force on 1st May 2021, have left many people wondering what the future basis of relations between the EU and the UK will be.

Our speakers will give you their assessment of the current situation and will focus primarily on topics relating to the Financial Services Industry, while also touching on non-financial services topics.

This time, we are also proud to announce that we have been able to attract well known Brexit experts but also in person of Prof. Dr. Kämmerer, the co-editor and co-author of the recently published book "Brexit. Legal and Economic Aspects of a Political Divorce", which he will present.

You are invited to join us virtually as we discuss the Brexit-related future of Europe and the challenges and opportunities of this phase of Brexit.
