Stephanie Provato is an Associate practicing entertainment law at Buchli Goldstein LLP in Toronto. Before specializing in entertainment law, Stephanie worked at Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP, at Blake, Cassels Graydon LLP, and in-house at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Her experience includes corporate commercial transactions, intellectual property, entertainment, and privacy law.
In 2014, in anticipation of CASL coming into force, Stephanie wrote an article entitled, “Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation: A Constitutional Analysis”, which challenged the constitutionality of the effects of CASL. Her article was later published in the John Marshall Law School’s International Law Journal on Information Technology where it generated significant media buzz and was subsequently reported on in The Financial Post and on NewsTalk 1010 Radio.
Stephanie is active in the legal community, and serves on the Executive Board of Young Women in Law, and the Entertainment, Media and Communications Law section of the Ontario Bar Association. She also regularly writes articles for her website, IP Oversee, which reports on hot topics, recent developments, case law, and legislative changes in intellectual property, information technology, entertainment, and privacy law. Her website is listed on LawBlogs.ca as a certified blog by the Canadian Law Blogs List.
