As well as being a senior consultant here at Preiskel, I am a writer and journalist about law and policy matters. Since June I have been writing a lot about Brexit.
Brexit is, for me, fascinating. There is complexity, as it brings together policy and law, trade and economics, and political and constitutional issues. And there is unpredictability, as nobody at all knows what will be outcome. Of course, many people and companies will be directly (and perhaps adversely) affected. But the subject of Brexit is exciting for anyone interested in how to deal (and not deal) with knotty legal and policy issues.
Most of my commentary has been over at the Financial Times (see link here), where I am their legal commentator. Recently I have provided detailed commentary on the Miller appeal at the Supreme Court. At this link I set out what we learnt from the appeal hearing.
Journalism and commentary is one thing; advising clients is another. Both require technical knowledge and an ability to communicate clearly. But the audience is not the same, and nor is the focus of what is communicated. One is meant for the public benefit (or at least anybody who reads it), the other is to deal with the direct concerns of private parties.
At Preiskel, I am just one of a number of lawyers who can and do advise about Brexit and TMT. (TMT is the one thing I do not usually write about at the FT as there should be no question about my impartiality or client interests.) We are able to provide bespoke and practical advice on any TMT matter which may be affected by Brexit, from data protection to broadcasting and telecoms, and also on competition and licensing issues.
Give us a shout if you would like us to help you deal with Brexit matters in a TMT context.
