Legal Careers in Crypto with Jake Chervinsky

Jake Chervinsky is the General Counsel at Compound Labs, one of the top DeFi projects built on Ethereum. We sat down with Jake to discuss how he went from working at a boutique law firm, to starting a Twitter account sharing content on the legal outlook Bitcoin ETF applications, to ending up at Compound. It’s a unique story that is applicable to all future crypto industry professionals, not just limited to lawyers.

This is an excellent discussion for any aspiring legal students, current lawyers or just people interested in what Jake has to say!

We also take a few minutes to dive into the DeFi ecosystem of which Compound is such a huge part of, to discuss progressive decentralization and much more.
