Dual-qualified, German lawyer appointed to Leeds City Region We are International Ambassador Network

4 June 2015

A dual-qualified commercial lawyer at the Leeds office of northern law firm, Ward Hadaway, has been appointed to Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership’s We are International network, initiative which gives free advice and mentoring to novice exporters.

An associate in the commercial department of Ward Hadaway, German-born Andrea Vero is qualified as an English solicitor and as a German lawyer - a Rechtsanwältin. Fluent in German, she advises national and international clients on domestic and cross-jurisdictional commercial contracts with special expertise in the food and drink, manufacturing, pharmaceutical and renewable energy sectors.

Because of her dual qualification, Andrea Vero can advise English-speakers on the intricacies of German law and explain the complexities of the English legal system to German-speaking clients. She also often acts as an intermediary between German-speaking international organisations and their English legal advisors for other areas of law such as commercial litigation, insolvency and probate.

The export network is a major element of the Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership’s We are International campaign. The initiative – delivered in partnership with international trade specialists Chamber International, UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) Yorkshire and The Enterprise Europe Network and MY Export Hub – aims to add £1.6bn to the City Region economy and create thousands of jobs during the next three years.
