The Lawyer’s panel of experts from a wide range of European firms in London discuss their business perspectives, plans and strategies for post-referendum UK.
Has Brexit changed your firm’s view on London as a strategic location?
Dimitry Afanasiev, chairman, Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners: Private clients are no longer viewing the UK as unquestionably the number one place to bring their families and their money. Other jurisdictions are being considered more seriously.
Do you expect more UK-based companies and clients to have the need for European legal advice in London to cope with the Brexit process? And which areas of law do you expect to have the highest demand?
Afanasiev: Arbitration and litigation will see high demand because contracts have been signed and will stay in eff ect in the long term. We are looking to bring in an experienced commercial litigator to help co-ordinate the cases we refer to our friends in London law firms.
