Zoopla CEO Behind Mishcon De Reya Anti-Brexit Legal Action

ALEX CHESTERMAN

City law firm Mishcon de Reya are launching a legal challenge to Brexit with the backing of a number of businesses who for some reason haven’t been named publicly. Guido can reveal one of the CEOs behind the action is CEO of the property website Zoopla. In an email to other businesses, CEO Alex Chesterman claimed:

“If the correct constitutional process is not followed then the notice to withdraw from the EU would be unlawful and open to legal challenge…

With this in mind, Mishcon de Reya, on behalf of a number of clients have commenced a legal process to ensure the UK Government will not trigger the procedure for withdrawal from the EU without parliamentary approval and have, subsequent to his article, retained Lord Pannick QC to act as counsel in this action. These steps seek to ensure that any Article 50 notification process is lawful.

I strongly encourage you to support this important issue. We want to ensure that this once-in-a-generation issue is handled properly under UK law with the correct constitutional process applied to an irreversible decision of this magnitude.

Please can I ask you to action as follows below:
 
1. Email Mishcon to lend your support/name to this process
2. Please use the hashtag: #mpstodecide and share/tweet the link to the Mishcon press release
3. Use this email as a basis to send your own version to your network to encourage wider support

If the referendum had been decided by FPTP, Leave would have won 440 seats to Remain’s 220. Good luck…
