Twelve months on from the decision to leave the European Union, we are starting to get down to business.

Last Monday, negotiations over the UK’s exit deal began, while the Prime Minister has begun setting out proposals to grant “settled status” to all EU citizens who have lived in the UK for five years or more.

Many businesses and individuals will be pleased that the long-term residency of EU workers has been singled out for early resolution and that there appears to be commitment on settling this question sooner rather than later. There are 2.2m citizens of the European Union employed in the UK. Combined with a further 1.2m workers from non-EU countries, they account for 11pc of the UK workforce. More than 100 nationalities are represented in our firm alone.
