On June 23, 2016, in a populist shift, the U.K. electorate did the unthinkable. It voted to leave the European Union (E.U.) and to forge new trading relationships with the eurozone and the rest of the world, including the U.S. Now, we sit amid a global economy threatened by a pandemic and a U.K. with no clear path for exiting the EU. At the end of the year, the U.K. will leave the EU, either with or without a trade treaty. However, there is guarded optimism a trade treaty can be forged.
