Legal proceedings to ensure parliamentary due process for Article 50 withdrawal – Anneli Howard retained as counsel

04 Jul 2016 | by Lynn Stuart

Mishcon de Reya has been instructed, on behalf of a group of clients, to seek a pre-emptive declaration from the Courts to clarify the constitutional requirements for the UK Government’s withdrawal from the EU. Legal steps have been taken to ensure Article 50 TEU – the procedure for notifying and negotiating the UK’s withdrawal from the EU – cannot be triggered without an Act of Parliament. Mishcon de Reya has retained Anneli Howard as part of the wider EU/ public law counsel team of Lord David Pannick QC, Rhodri Thompson QC and Tom Hickman.
