Richard Lutkus was a tech enthusiast long before he ever became a lawyer. He wrote computer code as a high schooler and built websites and computers for his professors as an undergrad at Creighton University.

Now a partner in Seyfarth Shaw’s San Francisco office, Lutkus still thinks of himself as a technologist first. “If you don’t have an innate passion for technology and some sort of raw talent for it, I think it’s much harder to learn technology than the law,” he says.
