Crystal Kaldjob was featured in a Law360 interview, discussing the expanding financial technology industry, the need for top legal talent in the field, and Morrison & Foerster’s position as a leading fintech firm.

We’ve already been there, and we wanted to think about going beyond what our core is in terms of financial services regulatory work.”
