Anderson Strathern has responded to client demand in the wake of the vote to leave the European Union by launching a Brexit advisory group.

The 12-strong team, led by the law firm’s managing partner, Murray McCall, is tasked with tracking Brexit developments and stepping up dialogue with the UK and Scottish governments in a bid to advise clients on how leaving the EU will affect them.

McCall said: “Adapting to life post-Brexit is going to be a drawn-out affair that will impact many of our clients’ day-to-day activities and strategic planning.

“While it’s not new for us to be advising on Scotland and the UK’s relationship with the EU, we feel the fast-changing landscape warrants a dedicated team who regularly meet to discuss implications and put a plan of action in place.”

The team also includes Anderson Strathern chairman Robert Carr, who said: “The outcome of the UK’s recent referendum on EU membership is making waves across the business scene and looks like it will continue to do so for the considerable future.

“For that reason, and in response to demand from our client base, we have set up a dedicated executive team made up of partners and experts from across the firm to keep abreast of latest developments and to consider the risks and opportunities inherent to a complex, international regulatory process like the one now in hand. As a full-service law firm we are ideally placed to advise every sector and across all client bases from private clients to businesses and commercial clients and also the public sector.”
