In this Brexit Snapshot, FTI Consulting examines the key players that will shape the positions of some of the most influential EU Member States. Often shunning the limelight, these individuals will play a crucial role in determining the approach that their leader takes in the final negotiations.
While a broad range of ministries will engage in the process, in the end, it will come down to the 27 Presidents and Prime Ministers to agree any final Brexit deal. And as this snapshot shows, their advisers and offices will take a central role.
For the moment, officials and politicians across the EU’s capitals will be carefully digesting Prime Minister Theresa May’s speech from last week (Tuesday 17 January), and considering the implications for the formal negotiations that begin when the UK fires the starting gun by invoking Article 50 of the EU Treaty.
