Inline Policy, the consultancy for innovative and fast-growing businesses looking to engage with Government has launched a specialist Brexit Advisory Unit following the result of the recent referendum.
The unit is headed up by William Bain, who also leads the firm’s Fintech and Financial Services, division. William a former shadow minister, and Parliamentarian is an EU expert. He brings extensive knowledge of key economic, strategic, and regulatory matters having been a member of the Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee, with particular interests in industrial and financial services policies. The team has considerable experience across Government, business and commercial activity in the UK and EU with specialised regulatory expertise in London and Brussels.
William Bain head of the Brexit Advisory Unit said, “In the last few years, from Edinburgh to London, the UK has secured more investment in its Fintech sector than any other European country. Fintech companies have big concerns about the scale of access they will have to Europe’s financial services markets after the UK leaves the EU, whether passporting rights will continue, and how they can continue to attract the best talent from across the EU to help grow the UK’s thriving Fintech sector.”
The Brexit Advisory Unit will work with firms to advise them on how the impact of Brexit will affect their business, including policy and regulatory implications. The 10 strong team will work with clients to engage with the Government and relevant policymakers ensuring that their voice is heard to help shape the negotiation and transition process.
Shomik Panda, Inline’s Managing Director, said: “Inline’s Brexit Advisory Unit will work with businesses to help steer them through this time of significant change in our economy. UK businesses now have a unique opportunity to help shape a post-Brexit regulatory environment that will promote innovation, jobs and growth. We will work alongside our clients to ensure they are in the best possible position to be part of the conversation with the key decision makers.”
