Techxit concerns Trumped – keep calm and code on

The UK has almost 60,000 tech businesses which together employ over 1.5 million people, and the numbers continue to grow. Much of the growth in the tech industry has been fuelled by startups which have benefited from the UK’s ability to attract talent from across the EU and the rest of the world.  However, following the Brexit vote there were concerns that the UK’s days as a magnet for tech talent may be numbered in a so called Techxit. As we wait to see when/if Article 50 will be triggered and try to manage the uncertainty this brings, we also need to monitor the changes that a new USA administration will bring. Will Trump help or hinder the UK tech sector?

Brexit and the position of children born to European nationals living in the UK

Following the UK’s referendum in June on its membership of the EU, many European nationals are concerned with their future immigration status in the UK once Brexit takes effect. Equally, some are considering the status of their children and whether they are able to register them for British citizenship or apply for a British passport. In this blog, we outline the law relating to this, which may help you determine the status of children born to European nationals living in the UK.
