Stephanie joined Lighthouse Law in November 2019 and is part of our managed legal services team working for clients in South Africa and the UK.  Prior to joining Lighthouse, she practised at one of Cape Town’s largest IP firms, focusing on trade mark prosecution and portfolio management.

Before embarking on a legal career, Stephanie worked as a copywriter in the advertising industry for several years. Notable projects she was involved in include the roll-out of marketing material for Capitec Bank and the first locally conceptualised global campaign for Virgin Active.

She looks forward to being part of the team, broadening her knowledge of commercial and contract law, and working on projects that will allow her to make use of her previous experience.
