New Podcast: Jolie Yang on “Working in Fintech”

We’re regularly posting new podcasts for members. In this 11-minute podcast, Jolie Yang – Corporate Counsel at Coinbase – talks with me about her journey from BigLaw to Fintech. We discuss:

1. How it feels coming from established BigLaw firms to a high-profile, newly public company where things might move more quickly and processes might still be getting worked out

2. Advice for other in-house folks whose companies might be considering going public via a direct listing

3. What’s it like being a securities lawyer in an industry that’s innovating and disrupting the very definition of “securities”

4. One thing that more “traditional” securities lawyers would benefit from understanding about crypto and fintech
