On 29th March 2017, the United Kingdom has triggered Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, thus making the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union official nine months after the referendum and starting the maximum two-year countdown of the exit process. While UK-EU trade relations will have to be redefined and some legislation ought to be reviewed, the consequences that the Brexit has for our very integrated jurisdiction and enforcement framework remain uncertain.
