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 Corporate lawyers?

This Practice Note provides an introduction to corporate and company law (Corporate). It is aimed at trainee solicitors and those who are new to Corporate as a practice area. It focuses on the basic principles that apply and includes links to Lexis®PSL Corporate and other LexisNexis® sources and materials which provide more comprehensive information on the topics covered.

Those who are new to Corporate are also likely to find the Overviews in each of the subtopics in the Corporate practice area useful. These Overviews summarise the law relating to a particular issue or aspect of Corporate transactions, providing links to relevant content within the subtopic to help navigate the area concerned. For examples, see: Allotment, issue and pre-emption—overview and Powers, duties and liabilities of directors—overview.
