Which team are you working with and what does a typical day look like for you at LEXR?
I am part of the FinTech & Blockchain Team, where I advise companies on matters regarding blockchain, DLT, digital assets and FinTech. My typical day begins with updating my to-do list and checking my e-mails. I have a check-in call with my supervisor about three times a week, during which I can ask questions, receive new assignments, and get them explained in detail. For the rest of the morning, I focus on client work, such as drafting legal memos, contracts, incorporation documents, and internal guidelines. After lunch, I continue with client work, answering emails, and taking part in client calls.
