On 23 June 2016, the UK will vote on whether to stay in the EU. A significant proportion of the law regulating UK business comes from Europe, while the free movement of persons facilitates UK employers recruiting workers from other member states. Given the EU’s considerable influence on British business and workplace regulation, what are the likely legal consequences of a vote in favour of Brexit?

Four of our own experts at Lewis Silkin will take a look at the legal implications of a Brexit in the areas of employment, immigration, intellectual property and data protection.

Will the UK repeal key employment laws on working time and discrimination? Will recruitment of overseas workers become easier or harder for employers? Will I need to register new UK trade marks, designs and patents where I've been relying on EU-wide registrations to date? And will the headache of data protection compliance go away? Our breakfast briefing will consider these and other similar issues, including plenty of time for questions and debate.
