Brexit poses more opportunities than threats. That was the prevailing sentiment from a panel of leading observers gathered Monday, August 15, in Charlotte to discuss the matter, as noted in this Charlotte Business Journal article. The more than 100 business leaders attending the talk, sponsored by Womble Carlyle and the British-American Business Council, heard from Jeremy Pilmore-Bedford, British Consul General, John Williams, CEO of Domtar Corp., Jay Bryson, Global Economist with Wells Fargo, Doug Wood, a partner at Grant Thornton, and Womble Carlyle Charlotte attorneys Jeff Hay and Ted Claypoole, as well as their colleagues from the U.K. law firm Bond Dickinson (via video link), Managing Partner Jonathan Blair and Francesco Lamanna.
Among other items discussed were possible tax implications, impact on the fintech industry, shifts in data regulations, and the fortitude of London as the hub of the world’s financial services industry.
