Brexit: End of the transition period – State aid and Procurement
02nd December 2020
As we approach the end of the transition period, it is important that businesses are aware of the changes which will or could apply to these important areas of law once the UK finally emerges from the transition period and begins to adapt to life fully outside the EU.
The transition period will maintain the status quo until 31 December 2020 – but after that we will be subject to an alternative regime. What restriction will there be on State subsidy? What will happen to existing grants and other State measures? What aid will be permissible under any new system? Will the public sector still be bound by procurement rules?
In this Zoom webinar on 2 December 2020 at 12 pm, State aid and procurement specialists Dean Murray and Tim Care will discuss the implications of Brexit in these areas – click here to register. In conversation with Damien Charlton, they will discuss issues such as:
- What the likely options are for a replacement subsidy control regime after the transition period
- How WTO rules on subsidies work
- The potential for a UK specific regime
- The impact of the change on existing grants and other State measures
- The most likely public procurement regime
So register here to join Tim, Dean and Damien at this webinar on 2 December 2020 at 12pm to find out more.
Dean Murray is a state aid specialist who has extensive experience of advising grantors, grant recipients and third parties. Tim Care specialises in advising our public sector clients on procurement law and practice.
