Flint Specialist Partner Philip Rycroft provides his views on why a Brexit deal – although relatively thin- is better than a no deal. He argues that with a no deal, sectors like agri-good and automotive would be hit be high tariffs, and the EU would have little incentive to put in place easements to help manage the new trade border from 1 January. He adds that such a scenario would make it harder to get deals on other aspects of the relationship like internal security. A no deal Brexit would also further destablise the Union.
Flint Managing Partner Simon Fraser was quoted in the New York Times on Biden’s victory. “I’m feeling optimistic.. I’m not expecting a radical change in American foreign policy, but I do expect a change in body language and tone, and a shift away from unilateralism to collaboration with allies.”
Flint Managing Partner Simon Fraser told the Financial Times that if Joe Biden wins, the UK Government will try to re-engage America more enthusiastically in the NATO alliance and “look for ways to get America re-engaged in multilateralism, for example in support for international institutions such as the World Health Organization and the World Trade Organization.”
