As a seasoned attorney, Stephanie brings a different set of eyes to resolving commercial disputes. She has been on all sides of the mediation table: as a litigator at several large local firms; as a global negotiator of countless multi-million dollar technology contracts; as the client (she is currently working in-house directing a healthcare technology company’s legal team, including litigation); and the mediator. She received formal mediator training at Pepperdine’s Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution in California, as well as in Utah at Utah Dispute Resolution. Stephanie is also a certified privacy lawyer through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).
Stephanie is particularly attuned to identifying and assisting with issue-resolution across a wide range from complex large contract disputes, compliance, SaaS licensing and disputes, IP, international business issues, and privacy. She is also keenly aware of the underlying pressures confronting businesses that play into conflict resolution.
Stephanie is particularly well qualified in working through issues involving:
- commercial contracting issues
- data privacy and breach, US and internationally
- SaaS licensing and intellectual property issues arising in commercial contracts
- international law and cross border disputes
- data analytics, machine learning
- technology disputes

For many years Stephanie was involved with the Utah State Bar, Women Lawyers of Utah and many other professional and civic organizations where she donated her time.
