Post-Brexit Video: Impact of the High Court's Decision on Triggering Article 50

This Emerging Issues video is the fourth in a series about Brexit - the June 2016 referendum in which the UK electorate voted to leave the EU. In it, Adam Brown, partner in the Firm's Financial Institutions Litigation & Regulation Practice, discusses the recent decision in which the High Court ruled that the UK government cannot trigger Article 50, the exit mechanism and the two-year period for negotiating the UK's exit from the EU, without parliamentary consent. He notes that the UK government plans to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court and discusses how the type of parliamentary consent required may impact both the timeline and conditions for Brexit.
