Progressive divergence between EU and UK Law

It is the UK’s stated objective to repatriate its law-making powers from the EU, so whilst initially EU law will be transposed into UK law, inevitably over time UK law will commence diverging from EU law. This may have an impact on the following areas of commercial law:

  • Advertising and marketing
  • Agency
  • Confidentiality
  • Consumer law
  • Dispute resolution
  • Distribution
  • E-commerce
  • Franchising
  • Outsourcing
  • Product labelling
  • Product liability
  • Regulated professionals
  • Rules of origin
  • Supply of goods
  • Supply of services
