The debate on Scotland’s constitutional future continues in the aftermath of both the 2014 Scottish Independence Referendum, in which Scotland voted to remain part of the United Kingdom, and the 2016 UK European Union Referendum, in which the UK voted to leave the EU.  Here we provide some answers to the questions that you are asking.

Turcan Connell will continue to provide impartial advice based on our thorough understanding of our clients’ needs and the areas in which they operate. We will monitor relevant issues very carefully, contribute to the discussions as the debate unfolds and advise clients appropriately regardless of the prevailing constitutional environment.

Before taking any action, you are advised to seek specific advice, tailored to your own requirements. Commentary by Turcan Connell is intended only as a general guide and no action should be taken as a result of that commentary alone.
