As law firms scramble to explain possible Brexit scenarios to clients, some analyses say the Asian region is set for a trade windfall from the UK’s exit from the EU.

But Asian countries may benefit from this opportunity as well. “Exiting the EU will require Britain to negotiate separate [FTAs] with Asia-Pacific countries – if it so desires,” said Elliott. “This has the potential to benefit countries in the Asia-Pacific region such as China, as Britain – in the event of Brexit – would be expected to focus on developing stronger trade relationships in the Asia-Pacific region, offering trading opportunities for both governments and companies.”
