How did your last job equip you for this one?
"Before Square Peg, I was a lawyer in the financial services and FinTech team at Piper Alderman, primarily working in the blockchain group. Working as a private practice lawyer in any field is excellent training, with the relentless focus on attention to detail, time-pressure, and high stakes almost inevitably leading to an appreciation for hard work. Working in the blockchain group at Pipers was particularly amazing, as it gave me the opportunity to be a part of an incredibly dynamic global industry, working to resolve difficult regulatory questions in a highly uncertain environment. I think this led to a real appreciation for the value of commercial advice over the conservative, protective advice that some lawyers are known for.The other key benefit was direct exposure to a whole range of different startups, founders and techies from all over the world. Their passion and drive to just get stuff done was a constant source of inspiration."
