Hi, I’m Edyta
I’m the founder of Derivatives Lab and FIT Legal, a boutique legal consultancy. I’m a legal counsel, an entrepreneur and investor. I have over a decade of experience working in the banking and finance industry. I started as a trainee in a law firm and qualified into commercial litigation. It took me less than a month post qualification to figure out that I was not cut for private practice.
When searching for my next adventure, I came across a niche of lawyers specialising in trading agreements and derivatives; like tax lawyers, they seemed to be representing a very different breed. Soon enough, the vision of becoming a legal counsel working for a global investment bank became a dream and I decided to pursue a career in this field. Opportunity met with preparation, and I joined Credit Suisse as their legal counsel and negotiator shortly after leaving private practice. I will never forget the day I was told I got the job – I was ecstatic!
