Debevoise & Plimpton LLP announced today that counsel Lee A. Schneider has launched a FinTech-focused podcast, Appetite for Disruption. Mr. Schneider and co-host Troy A. Paredes, former SEC Commissioner and founder of Paredes Strategies LLC, will bring their unique perspectives to the diverse, fast-developing world of FinTech.
