Utah Business Magazine
 has recognized Parsons Behle & Latimer (Parsons) attorney Tsutomu L. Johnson as one of its “Forty Under 40” professionals, an annual award given to young business professionals who are working to evolve the state of Utah’s business landscape. Johnson was one of only two legal professional to be given the award. Utah Business Magazine says their “Forty Under 40” honorees are elevating our future and paving the way for a new state of success.

Tomu JohnsonJohnson is actively changing Utah’s legal landscape with a disruptive legal service delivery model that increases access to legal services for small-to-medium-sized businesses as co-founder and CEO of Parsons Behle Lab, a wholly owned subsidiary of Parsons Behle & Latimer. Johnson is also Parsons’ chief privacy officer, practicing primarily in the cybersecurity and data privacy practice group.

Johnson’s vision to create affordable and time-efficient solutions for widespread regulatory compliance legal needs led to the establishment of Parsons Behle Lab. Johnson and his Parsons Behle Lab team now provide innovative software solutions that walk clients through the process of creating customized privacy compliance documentation that meet international and domestic privacy data regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The solution is offered at a fraction of the cost and time of traditional legal services, enabling even small companies to avoid astronomical noncompliance fines that could threaten their existence.    

Johnson says, “The legal field has been providing its services the same way for more than 100 years. It’s invigorating to work and change what has become stagnant in the legal profession.”

Johnson also serves as the president of the Young Alumni Association which helps prepare University of Utah law students for their careers.

“Forty Under 40” recipients will be honored at a Utah Business Magazine event to be held Feb. 20, 2020.
