Stefanie is an experienced litigator, with more than 8 years’ experience in complex and large-scale commercial litigation and insolvency in England and Australia.  Before joining South Square, Stefanie practised at Lipman Karas, a leading firm specialising in insolvency and commercial litigation.  She has frequently worked as a member of a team, working closely with senior and junior counsel, and well understands the pressures facing solicitors instructed in commercial litigation.

Stefanie’s experience of large-scale litigation includes recently acting as a junior counsel in PJSC Uralkali v Rowley and Baker [2020] EWHC 3442(Ch), as part of a counsel team of four.  She acted for the administrators of a Formula One team in their successful defence of claims in negligence, negligent misstatement and breach of confidence by an unsuccessful bidder concerning the conduct of the sale of the business.

During her career in Australia, she acted for several years for the special purpose liquidator of One.Tel on claims brought against the former directors and associated entities arising from the abandonment of a rights issue and the subsequent high-profile collapse of the company.

As part of her broader insolvency and restructuring practice, Stefanie has experience in schemes of arrangement, and has been engaged as junior counsel in several schemes of arrangement, including Re ALL Scheme (concerning Amigo Loans), Re Petra Diamonds US$ Treasury Plc and Re Lecta Paper UK Ltd.

Stefanie has a particular interest in third-party litigation funding, having recently completed a doctorate at the University of Oxford.  She is an author of Zuckerman on Australian Civil Procedure.
