The news this morning of the Leave vote in the UK referendum was deeply unsettling for many people not least our people in our London office and our clients around the world. These are volatile and troubled times for the global economy. But we must not let ourselves be diverted into any hasty decision making.
This is just the beginning of a long process. While there will be questions for UK businesses in their relationships with the EU and the rest of the world, longer term we remain confident that solutions to the current uncertainties will be found.
Many times in our seventy year history Baker & McKenzie has seen turbulent times and worked with our clients through many crises all around the world.
Now is the time to think rationally and work with our clients to give them our best advice so that they can make measured long term decisions.
