Commercial—new starter guide

IP COMPLETION DAY: 11pm (GMT) on 31 December 2020 marks the end of the Brexit transition/implementation period entered into following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. At this point in time (referred to in UK law as ‘IP completion day’), key transitional arrangements come to an end and significant changes begin to take effect across the UK’s legal regime. This document contains guidance on subjects impacted by these changes. Before continuing your research, see Practice Note: What does IP completion day mean for Commercial?

This new starter guide provides an introduction to Commercial law (Commercial). It is aimed at trainee solicitors and those who are new to Commercial as a practice area. It focuses on the key issues that arise when advising on Commercial matters and includes links to other LexisNexis® sources and materials which provide more comprehensive information on the topics covered.

Those who are new to Commercial are also likely to find the Overviews in each of the subtopics in the practice area useful. These Overviews summarise the law relating to a particular right or issue, providing links to relevant content within the subtopic to help navigate the area concerned. For an example see: Outsourcing agreements—overview and Varying a contract—overview.

Where something is not covered by this basic guide, use the Topics tab or Topics dropdown menu to browse further practice area content.
