How did the UK get to Brexit and what’s been the reaction there and abroad? Those are the questions considered by our panel of leading analysts in this latest addition to our multi-part video series exploring Brexit’s potential challenges and opportunities for businesses on either side of the Atlantic. This clip features insights from Wells Fargo economist Jay Bryson, Domtar Corp. CEO John Williams, British Consul General Pilmore-Bedford, and Bond Dickinson attorneys Jonathan Blair and Francesco Lamana.
