Businesses Prepare Legal Challenge over Brexit Negotiations

group of businesses is preparing a legal challenge to prevent the government from beginning Brexit negotiations without an act of parliament.

The action, brought by law firm Mishcon de Reya, would potentially complicate Britain’s path to leaving the EU, given that a majority of MPs were in favour of remaining and many have continued to speak in favour of maintaining access to the single market.

Candidates in the Conservative leadership election have so far treated the start of negotiations as within the next prime minister’s discretion.
