This month’s In Focus revolves around the theme of professional services in a trade context.

This is an apt time for a window into professional services as they will be relevant for the continuing negotiations between the EU and UK. Both financial services and professional services make up important parts of the UK economy and, while financial services have received a lot of coverage, professional services have not.
