The Women of IFA Network (WIN) honored Fenwick tax lawyer Julia Ushakova-Stein in their new book Recognising 100 Years of Women in Tax. The book highlights women past and present who have contributed to and shaped the future of women working in international tax.

The book notes that Ushakova-Stein is “Recognised for her contribution to international tax in private practice in the field of international tax planning, mergers and acquisitions and transfer pricing and for her management of tax controversy matters.”

Ushakova-Stein regularly advises major companies from a diverse set of industries and geographic areas in highly sophisticated domestic and international tax planning that often involve many billions of dollars.
