She is at the very top of her game and she treats each matter on her plate, large or small, as if it is the most important project that she has ever supported.

A large portion of Stephanie’s practice consists of the representation of large commercial banks in connection with syndicated credit facilities to borrowers in a wide variety of industries with a particular emphasis on leveraged buyouts, secured oil and gas reserve-based lending and the financing of midstream pipeline and oilfield services acquisitions and working capital lines of credit. As a result of her understanding of, and experience in, the nuances of reserve-based lending and other energy transactions and her dedication to client services, Stephanie has assisted clients on their existing energy credits during the recent downturn in the energy industry. Together with her restructuring colleagues at the firm, Stephanie has worked on numerous restructurings, work-outs and re-financings of troubled energy credits. Such experiences include debt-to-equity swaps, distressed trades, restructuring support agreements, debtor-in-possession credit facilities, exit facilities and other components of Chapter 11 and Chapter 7 proceedings for various energy companies.

Stephanie’s dedication to client service has been recognized by Chambers USA since 2011 and her practice has been recognized by other publications since 2006. According to Chambers USA, Stephanie has impressed sources, who describe her as “a dynamo,” “…responsive, thorough, very smart, creative and practical” and “…can think several moves ahead on the chessboard.”
