PROVO, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--eTAGZ has created nationwide interest in the Utah legal community by hiring thirty-nine-year-old Sean D. Reyes, a nationally acclaimed lawyer and one of Utah’s most high-profile and successful young attorneys, as its corporate General Counsel. A summa cum laude graduate of BYU, Reyes received his JD from UC Berkeley and was a partner at Parsons Behle & Latimer, Utah’s largest law firm, where he worked on some of the State’s biggest and most lucrative cases over the past thirteen-plus years. Of Japanese-Hawaiian and Spanish-Filipino ancestry, Reyes is one of the first minority lawyers in the history of the State to make partner at a major firm. In 2007, he was the first-ever recipient of the American Bar Association’s award for Most Outstanding Young Lawyer in the United States based on legal skill, professionalism and service to community. Reyes has garnered numerous other local and national awards recognizing him for being among the most influential young businessmen in the country.
Reyes is an oft-rumored and likely candidate for Utah Attorney General in 2012 and is a member of the governing body for the Utah Republican Party. He has served as an alternate delegate to the Republican National Convention and was appointed by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and the United States Congress in 2009 to serve nationally on a commission for Hispanic issues. Reyes recently served as a commissioner for Utah judicial nominations under Governor Gary Herbert. He has been a judge pro tem for over a decade and was an ex-officio member of the governing organization for the state bar association. Reyes is former President of the Utah Minority Bar Association, current President of the Utah Hispanic Business Leadership Foundation and sits on a number of boards for corporations and non-profit entities.
Said eTAGZ CEO, Isaac Jacobson, “It is really fortuitous for eTAGZ to hire away a lawyer of Sean’s caliber and acclaim from such a respected firm. I think it speaks to the strength of eTAGZ’s patents and business opportunities. We are in the midst of a very aggressive campaign to enforce our patent rights against a legion of infringers. Sean is the perfect person to lead our crucial litigation efforts.” Joe Pia, of the law firm Pia, Anderson, Dorius, Reynard & Moss, which has filed dozens of patent infringement cases on behalf of eTAGZ, states: “There is not a more highly regarded attorney than Sean that I know.”
