For longer-term future contracts consider things like where both parties are located as there may be advantages to both parties being located in the UK or EU.

Ensure territorial references are clear and consider whether a pricing formulae is needed to vary prices in the event of the introduction of tariffs.

Future contracts may need flexibility built in, for example, a termination for convenience clause or even a specific Brexit termination clause.
