“Brexit: Corporate Communications And UK Election Laws”

Borden, Brown, and Butland:

Later this year, British and Northern Irish voters will go to the polls to decide whether or not to remain in the European Union. This important decision could have significant consequences for the British economy and firms that do business in the U.K., so it is not surprising that U.K. firms and multinational companies are increasingly voicing their opinion on what has been dubbed “Brexit.” Communicating about the referendum, however, can implicate U.K. campaign finance laws, and the campaign finance rules that apply to the Brexit referendum differ from both equivalent U.S. regimes and from the rules that apply during other U.K. elections.
