Keebles set to host Brexit seminar for Sheffield manufacturers

We’re pleased to have partnered with the Sheffield International Trade Centre (SITC) to help prepare manufacturers ahead of the impending Brexit deadline and its impact – deal or no deal – beyond 31 October.

The event is taking place on 24 October and will focus on key issues facing manufacturing businesses post-Brexit, potential risks in international commercial contracts and international data transfers.

Keebles’ Partner and Head of Manufacturing Paul Trudgill, Partner Giles Searby, Legal Director Carys Everitt and Solicitor Tom Rook, will be sharing expertise and insights for businesses as the UK prepares, in all likelihood, to exit from the European Union on 31 October.

Nick Patrick, Head of the SITC, will be sharing his expertise around international trading for businesses.

Head of Manufacturing, Paul Trudgill, said: “There are still many uncertainties about what Brexit will actually look like and little will become certain until after Parliament returns for the Queen’s Speech and after the European Leaders’ Summit on 17 October.

“What we can be sure of though is that Brexit is going to cause changes around areas including import and export agreements, which will mean businesses need to ensure operational processes remain efficient and that plans are in place to ensure business can carry on as usual as possible.

“Our event will be the perfect opportunity for manufacturers to gain some insight into what they should be doing to prepare for Brexit, what issues may arise and explore any potential opportunities for businesses.”

The workshop is geared towards manufacturing professionals and members of the SITC will be on hand to discuss the importance of preparation for businesses.

Our specialist manufacturing team advise on issues to meet a business’ specific needs, address any potential risks and opportunities Brexit may present, and work with clients to build effective continuity plans.

The event will be held on 24 October, 8:30am – 11am, in the Adelphi Room at Crucible Theatre, Norfolk Street, Sheffield.
