Ms. Giobbe joins after serving as Executive Director and Assistant General Counsel in the Emerging Technology Practice Group of a global financial services company, based in New York. For the past 11 years, she led legal support for global FinTech and emerging technology business initiatives, led the company's legal engagement with state attorneys general in alignment with consumer and community banking business priorities, directed all aspects of complex litigation and risk mitigation strategies, and managed internal investigations and responses to federal and state regulatory inquiries.
At Jones Day, Ms. Giobbe joins a team of nearly 320 lawyers who advise on the full range of complex cross-border financial transactions, regulatory matters, investigations, and litigation. She will represent a diverse client base of global financial institutions, issuers, borrowers, funds, asset managers, and FinTech companies.
