Brexit High Court ruling reaction: chairman of leading law firm calls for decision to be made to avoid economic instability
Chairman of Blake Morgan, Bruce Potter commented:
"The country voted to leave the European Union, so it comes as no surprise that government are appealing today's decision not to allow them to trigger Article 50 without Parliament’s approval.
"The vote to leave caused major uncertainty for a lot of businesses and many are keen to start the negotiation process as soon as possible so they know where and how the land lies for them in the future.
"That said there are still many issues that are still being consulted on and, at our recent Brexit roundtable hosted at our Cardiff office, many business leaders were keen to feed into this process before a final decision is made.
"Understandably today's ruling has sparked controversy and divided MPs and the business community. So a decision needs to be made as a matter of urgency to avoid instability in our markets.
"It's important that businesses understand what the challenges and opportunities are and we have set up a dedicated email helpline Brexit@blakemorgan.co.uk"
