Niek Biegman, resident partner of De Brauw London: “The political impact of the Supreme Court’s ruling should be relatively limited. I expect a majority in both houses of parliament to vote in favour of brief legislation for the authorisation to trigger Article 50. The evolved attitudes in parliament towards the invocation of Brexit proceedings and the government’s pledge to submit the end result of Brexit negotiations to parliament both point in that direction. It therefore looks unlikely that the government’s plan to trigger Article 50 by the end of March will be affected by this ruling”.
