She has advised governments, companies and trade associations on various issues of trade law such as trade remedy legislations and cases, import tariffs, rules of origin, the WTO consistency of multiple trade and domestic regulations affecting trade (tax measures, product regulations, measures affecting the distribution of goods, labelling requirements, sanitary and phytosanitary measures), and the implications of Brexit.

Stephanie's experience encompasses litigation before the WTO dispute settlement body, the Court of Justice of the European Union and representation of exporters and domestic producers in a number of trade defence proceedings across multiple jurisdictions. She has experience of technical assistance and institutional capacity building in the fields of trade defence and free trade agreements. She has also advised businesses on how to prepare for Brexit.
