Trade and Market Access Advisory

Brexit, the Covid-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine have pushed trade and market access to the top of board agendas.

Businesses across all sectors, geographies and sizes must navigate an increasingly complex global trading, regulatory and policy environment and determine what these changes mean for them. The turbulent geopolitical backdrop creates uncertainty as well as opportunity.

We work with clients to navigate geopolitical shifts, identify risks, steer government policy, and achieve their commercial objectives. We advise across all aspects of the trade and market access agenda, helping companies to achieve their preferred outcomes at the point where government and business meet. We help clients to traverse a range of challenges including the EU’s push for open strategic autonomy, the UK’s independent trade agenda, digital trade, trade and financial services, border modernisation, trade and sustainability, and ongoing supply chain and regulatory risk.

Brexit and Trade

Our Trade and Market Access Advisory offers a variety of services:

Our Trade and Market Access team has first-hand experience of working on trade policy both in business and at the highest levels of policymaking in the UK and across Europe. Across Whitehall, we bring direct experience from within key departments that shape post-Brexit trade and market access policy, including the Cabinet Office, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, the Department for International Trade and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, as well as the former Department for Exiting the EU. In Europe, we have a wider team and network of Senior Advisers who have worked across various EU institutions, regulatory authorities, and within Member State governments. The breadth and depth of our collective expertise allows us to tailor our support to the specific challenges our clients face. 

Learn about our experts leading this work: Sam Lowe, Ed de Minckwitz, Julian King, Simon Fraser, Philip Rycroft and Adam Marshall.
