A&L Goodbody addresses businesses at Brexit event
A&L Goodbody addressed leading businesspeople on the implications of Brexit for Ireland and the possible opportunities at a private event hosted with the British Irish Chamber of Commerce.
The event was addressed by Niall FitzGerald, patron of the British Irish Chamber of Commerce, and Julian Yarr, managing partner at A&L Goodbody.
Mr FitzGerald called on the Government to implement an ambitious “strategic plan for Ireland” in the wake of Brexit.
He added: “We now have the unique attraction as the naturally English-speaking, pro-business, easily accessible, euro-denominated EU member state with a truly open and diverse society, and highly-educated young talent.”
Mr Yarr said: “Ireland and the UK have incredibly close trading links and it’s vital that this continues post Brexit, for both countries. Therefore the role that the British Irish Chamber, as well as the roles of government and businesses like ourselves, play in the discussions and decisions is really important. Ireland is one of the most attractive destinations for international corporates establishing sophisticated operations.
“We are therefore extremely well positioned to facilitate businesses who post Brexit require a European hub to continue servicing their customers in Europe and elsewhere.”
