We cover the latest developments relating to Brexit to help you manage the challenges for Swiss businesses and individuals.

The United Kingdom left the European Union on 31 January 2020. After the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020, the UK left the EU Single Market and the EU Customs Union and international agreements of the EU no longer apply to the UK. As a result, the relationship between Switzerland and the UK also entered a new phase. Since 1 January 2021, Switzerland has been regulating its relationship with the UK with new bilateral agreements. On our news portal, we report on current developments and analyse the most important legal issues that will affect private individuals and companies in the coming months and years in connection with Brexit. We will help you and your business navigate the new trading landscape and legal framework so that you can meet the challenges and seize the opportunities of Brexit.
