Scott Reents doesn’t have what you might consider a typical lawyer background. He dabbled in computer programming while interning at a bank during college, and after earning an economics degree, veered into the tech industry during the boom of the 1990s. He later founded a nonprofit that developed voter guide software for media organizations, before ultimately turning to law. “I’ve always been drawn to areas where the traditional way of doing things is breaking down,” Reents said.
