Trade and EU Relations

Co-Chairs:                        Anneli Howard QC and George Peretz QC 

​The Trade and EU Relations Group focuses on the UK’s international trade policy and the network of legislation and regulation that governs global trade. Our recent work has focussed on Brexit negotiations, and the implications, for different industry sectors, of the UK-EU TCA, other UK FTAs and the UK’s accession to other international trade arrangements such as the CPTPC. 

The Group provides legal advice and briefings to Shadow Ministers, Labour MPs and the Labour Party generally on matters relating to International Trade and the UK’s relationship with the European Union and aims to inform and stimulate policy development in those areas. We also hold regular meetings and events which are open to all SLL members.
