A sense of stability has returned to the UK Economy and the business community is feeling more positive following all the political, economic and social uproar. Theresa May, the new prime minister has stated that until an agreement has been reached with Scotland and Northern Ireland in order to stabilise the British Union, Article 50 will not be triggered.
Before triggering Article 50, the UK government has undertaken to recruit around 500 experienced trade negotiators in order to negotiate trade agreements both the EU as well as other nations that are in trade relations with the UK as a result its membership with the EU.
Over the years, trade negotiators and negotiations have become progressively sophisticated and this could make recruiting them a difficult process. This is also due to the fact that the UK do not have enough persons with this type of technical knowledge needed to construct the required agreements from the start; partly because the EU has always been the front-runner in formulating every trade deal on behalf of the UK since the 1970s.
Businesses in the UK have been braced for the fact that they will face as little obstacles as possible concerning trade deals that are being negotiated or have been negotiated on their behalf by the EU when selling their goods. As UK is considered a single nation whose highest ratio of service exports to GDP in the G7is at 13% and whose service industry makes up about 80% of the economy, therefore, the merit of the aforementioned negotiation process may not likely repeat itself and can therefore not be overestimated.
According to the Financial Times, a trade negotiator once described a trade deal as "a long process: given that trade agreements have grown increasingly sophisticated, therefore concluding negotiations in five years will be considered a real achievement. In general, twenty commission negotiators are needed and they are backed up by 25-40 technical experts. This may seem like a lot but EU negotiators are known for their excellence and manage with fewer people than most nations or trading blocs".
At least a decade of intense negotiations is required when negotiations started from scratch with countries like Brazil and America occur. Therefore until Britain exits the EU, nothing formal can happen and then Article 50 can be invoked after two years.Ongoing trade with the EU- what models are available?
A number of countries outside the EU are known to have close economic relations and this provides an illustration of options that the UK would follow after the triggering of Article 50.
It is believed that the leave note was a protest by workers who felt that the EU stripped the manufacturing industry out of Northern England and Wales, however this process was cemented by the Thatcher government and it began long before the 1970s.
The question is: Can the UK wade through a decade or two of low growth and high defect? Since the main issue is that it would take a lot of time to build up. In order to make a success of growing its manufacturing industry, the UK must combine its finest assets and merge innovation with its production capabilities and must partner with global leaders.
For this to occur talented workers are needed in UK and a lot of them will come from abroad and apparently some are already in the UK. EU nationals who are employed staffs can be supported by their employers (Business Owners) by helping to organise British Citizenship for the staffs that have lived in the UK for six years or more and for those who have lived in the UK for more than five years, a Permanent Residence card can be organised.
A Sponsorship Licence must be obtained by the UK employers if they want to recruit non-EU nationals. A Sponsorship Licence can afford the opportunity to hire talent outside the EU so that a business owner can grow their business, however the licence entails many other responsibilities.
Although the UK Economy faces many challenges, Brexit makes available the opportunity to deliver businesses to explore new markets and to re-invigorate industries, especially if they have been left to struggle due to UK's comfortable reliance on the single market.
Businesses are advised to make the most of this period of relative stability by taking their time to plan how they will create new business opportunities and grow revenue as soon as the process of leaving EU starts.

Tier 1 Investor Visa - Business Immigration
Investing over 2 million pounds is defintely not a routine decision. We had to make sure that the Tier 1 investor immigration lawyers that we'd be picking has to be one of the best within the Tier 1 investor category. We contacted Reiss Edwards and they were able to get us not only the Tier 1 investor visa but also suggested profitable investment portfolios in addition to what we already had in mind.
Indefinite Leave to remain - UK Settlement and Naturalisation
I am glad that i instructed Reiss Edwards on my visa matter. It started with a 20 minutes free immigration advice. I met with Amar to discuss my ILR refusal. He gave me a great deal of quality advice and decided to take on my messy case. I had doubts on the merits of my case by he was relatively convinced he could win it. That made me quite secure. To be honest, things did not start as quick as I would have wanted, but they kept on communicating the process and state of things to me.A big thank you to Verusha and Foram. They were also very helpful. Brilliant and informative. Their fee was fair and reasonable, especially if you compare them to other law firms and immigration law firms in London; some of whom even told me that i would not be able to get an indefinte leave to remain in this country. The process was long but was worth it. In the end, a big thank you to Reiss Edwards.
Citizenship Application - UK Naturalisation
TI have just had British Citizenship application approved. Prior to making the application, i was not sure which law firm i should hire to facilitate the paperwork. After a few hours of research, i decided to go with Reiss Edwards and i must confess that i wasnt disappointed. The immigration lawyers at Reiss Edwards handled my case well and they really knew what they were doing. They were fully aware of what documents I needed and it was easy for them to tell if my case was going to be easy or not. At the end of the day, I have not received my British citizenship within 3 months. If anyone is looking for a good immigration lawyer to handle thier case, contact Reiss Edwards.
Spouse Visa - Appeals and visa refusals
My wife's spouse visa extension application was refused by the Home Office and they gave her 14 days to leave the country. We contacted Reiss Edwards and they said "OK don't worry we will sort this out". They put together the list of documents for me to obtain and they prepared a bundle which was as thick as the printer it came out from.We followed everything they asked us to do and in the end we won our appeal and got our spouse visa. We can't recommend them enough and we have promised ourselves never to make any more UK visa applications without them.

UK Settlement Visa
I contacted Reiss Edwards to help me with my wife’s UK settlement visa. They acted with utmost professionalism throughout the entire application. I spoke with Joe Dinh, he is an immigration solicitor and he is one of the best solicitors out there. He ensured that there was little to no room for error. At some point I thought he was over cautious. He remained calmed and continued to assure us on our immigration matter. Most people in his position would have panicked but he was calmed and continued to assure us. We received out positive outcome very quickly.

Indefinte Leave to remain - Individual Immigration - UK Settlement visa
It's a shame that you dont have an 'Excellent' star rating on here, as my experience with Reiss Edwards is nothing short of an excellent rating. They handled my application for an Indefinite Leave to remain in April 2014 and did my husband's one very recently including my daughter. Every time i have approached them, they have continued to treat me with courtesy, respect and patience. Amar was indeed a very thorough and professional gentleman. He is very knowledgeable, corporative and engaging. He responded to my emails, calls and enquiries promptly. He was always reassuring. I could not have asked for a better Immigration service. I would recommend them over and over again for anyone looking for an immigration advice. They gave me a free immigration advice when i called them, and the quality of the advice was something other charge thousands for. If you need a particular, name, Amar would be it. He exemplifies, for me, the true, professional gentleman. He is a valuable asset to Reiss Edwards.
Tier 2 Visa application - UK Work Visas
This is the only firm that i spoke with that didn't ask for money before listening to me, will be using them again.
I used Reiss Edwards for my Tier 2 visa application and it was successful. The team was ever present and happy to answer my question. The caseworker that dealing with my case went on holiday yet by case did not suffer one bit. Another lawyer stepped and took over the case without any hassle.
Tier 1 Investor Visa - Business Immigration
My Tier 1 Investor Visa was dealt with quickly and without issue. Would recommend Reiss Edwards as an Immigration law firm in London. Thank you to the team.
