When Eric and Timothy Crown came to P. Robert Moya in 1987 seeking legal advice for the computer company they were forming, Moya had no idea that he would one day call the two brothers boss. But after years of providing outside counsel to their Insight Enterprises, Inc., Moya has now signed on as general counsel for the Tempe, Arizona, holding company, whose two divisions sell computer hardware and software and offer business process services. Moya was most recently with the Phoenix office of Milwaukee’s Quarles & Brady Streich Lang, where he was a partner. Earlier he was with Gaston & Snow. Before that, he chalked up two decades of legal experience at local firms like Moya, Bailey, Bowers & Jones, which he founded in 1983 as a platform to enter the national market. That happened when the firm was picked up by Boston’s Gaston & Snow. Today Moya savors the opportunity to practice business along with law, a condition of his hire. After a career counseling business people, Moya is getting to be one himself. But to do that, he’s returned to square one, complete with nightly homework that teaches him about the computer industry. He’s also working almost solo, with just two full-time lawyers assisting him in Tempe, rather than the 450 he practiced with at Quarles & Brady. (He also has a part-time lawyer in their Chicago office and a full-time lawyer in London.) So far, Moya says, he likes the challenges of “a different kind of a mind-set.” Insight’s purpose, he says, is “not to get out legal work but to sell computer products.”
