L. Scott Askins

The first time a job opportunity at Atlanta-based Kabbage Inc. presented itself for L. Scott Askins, the timing wasn’t right. But then the CEO came knocking a second time. Now, two years into her tenure at the fintech company, which provides small business loans, Askins leads a team of six in-house attorneys and a compliance specialist.

Askins has held legal leadership roles at Premiere Global Services Inc., a collaboration software and services company, and at WebMD. She helped to take the online health information provider public in 2005. She spoke with reporter Stephanie Forshee about what it’s like to work at a startup like Kabbage and what advice she’d pass on to other in-house attorneys.
