Stephanie was called to the Bar in 2014. Stephanie specialises in Intellectual Property, Media and Art law and is developing a chancery and commercial practice. A significant proportion of her practice involves an international element and she has experience acting in cases with disputed jurisdiction.

Despite her recent call she is currently instructed in some of the largest and most high profile Intellectual Property cases currently before the UK courts. She has appeared before the CJEU (General Court), Court of Appeal, High Court and IPEC as well as in registry proceedings before the UK IPO and EUIPO. She enjoys working as part of a team and is also experienced and confident acting as sole counsel. She is regularly instructed to appear as sole counsel in applications and smaller matters in the High Court and IPEC, and is also instructed as sole counsel in the Court of Appeal. Recently Stephanie represented the successful respondent as sole counsel in the Court of Appeal in Glencairn IP Holdings Ltd v Product Specialities Inc (t/a Final Touch) [2020] EWCA Civ 609 which sets new precedent in relation to solicitors’ conflicts when acting in multiple cases brought by the same Claimant.
