Sara Vela Stewart, Chartered Legal Executive

Sara Vela Stewart, Chartered Legal Executive, Fieldfisher

I am a Chartered Legal Executive with over 6 years' experience advising international retail clients.

As a Chartered Legal Executive in the IP transactions and commercialisation team in Manchester, I specialise in advising clients on commercial and marketing matters and I have experience in contracts relating to franchising, distribution, ecommerce and licensing. I also have experience in preparing terms and conditions for a number of various competitions and promotions.

I am commercially minded which enables me to advise my clients on their businesses objectively and translate this into a tailored legal service. Due to my approach, I have created long-standing relationships with my clients.

I have gained invaluable commercial experience through my in-house secondment with a number of well known fashions brands. I'm a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives.

Outside of work, I like to travel, eat cheese, drink wine and socialise.
