Stefanie was key in setting up the firm in 1998, and is now its Joint Managing Director, heading its Transactional Practice. Her areas of expertise include mergers & acquisitions, equity capital markets and corporate transactions, in each of which fields she is an acknowledged leading professional.

Why walk when you can run? Stefanie is an adrenaline junkie who takes guilty pleasure in the punishing timelines of the M&A world, both a tough opponent across the boardroom table as well as deeply invested in each client relationship. And why can't a woman have it all and do it all? Stefanie's never-say-die attitude lives beyond the firm, and has her throwing herself into various charitable causes ranging from hospice to providing free cleft surgery for needy children in the region, and encompasses support for low vision youth.
