The United Kingdom has voted to leave the European Union, the result is clearly not what most had expected. Even those that led the “Leave” campaign seemed to be working on hope rather than reality and those opposed simply did not think it would happen.

A key legal challenge over whether Prime Minister, Theresa May, has the power to start the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union without parliamentary approval has begun.

A group of claimants led by investment manager Gina Miller and hairdresser Deir Dos Santos are demanding that the triggering of Article 50 – which starts a two-year deadline for the exit process to be completed – be subject to a vote in parliament. The case will be settled by a three-day judicial review in the Royal Courts of Justice.

Dos Santos is being represented by David Greene, Senior Partner and Head of Group Action Litigation at Edwin Coe, and Dominic Chambers QC, a commercial law barrister at Maitland Chambers.
