At Mulholland Law we are acutely aware of the implications of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union, particularly the catastrophic affect a no deal Brexit would have had throughout Ireland for Civic and Commercial life.
Despite the last-minute 11th hour agreement reached between the EU and the UK in December 2020 there are many challenges arising from the implementation and adherence to the Trade & Cooperation Agreement (Brexit Agreement).
Brexit represents the biggest disruption to business in decades and has affected every business across all industries and sectors.
We have taken the initiative in collaboration with our partners in the financial sector and are now pleased to offer a consultancy service to assist Clients through this hardship and ambiguity ensuring sound legal guidance, thus minimising any adverse impact.
The ever-evolving uncertainty, political showmanship, and bureaucracy has left many businesses on the Island of Ireland finding it incredibly difficult to navigate their trade smoothly inside/outside the Single Market. Our Brexit consultancy can assist you overcome these obstacles.
During negotiations the EU and UK agreed a Northern Ireland Protocol. This essentially gave businesses in the North the best of both worlds whereby there would be no new checks on goods crossing the border in the Island of Ireland. The protocol aimed to avoid a hard border in Ireland, promote the spirit of the Good Friday Agreement and make sure the integrity of the EU’s single market for goods was maintained. This has resulted in political controversy with Unionists refusing to enter Government in Stormont and the EU issuing proceedings against the UK before the European Court of Justice in Luxemburg for repeated failures to honour and implement the terms of the Brexit Agreement reached.
All in all this creates a very volatile and unstable economy to trade in. We aim to guide and assist our clients through the turbulence of Brexit.
Our office HQ is based conveniently off the M1 corridor in the vibrant Irish border town of Dundalk between the two major Irish City’s of Belfast and Dublin.
