In-House Counsel: John Reid

As someone always interested in information technology, John Reid found a perfect position for his skills as general counsel to TempWorks Software Inc., an Eagan-based developer and licensor of staffing software.
“I enjoy working alongside a team focused on cutting-edge software technologies, where I can be a part of helping the company continue to achieve market success through sound legal decision-making,” he said.
During his tenure as general counsel, Reid has achieved several major legal victories. Representing ARA Inc., a Minnesota-based sister company of TempWorks Software, Reid won a jury trial in a multiyear piece of litigation in Ramsey County that resulted in his client winning a favorable judgment exceeding $1 million.
In addition to successfully overseeing other pieces of litigation, Reid’s work encompasses managing the legal aspects of transactions involving the two companies. In 2018, he oversaw a new credit and sale agreement with an international bank. By reducing borrowing costs, TempWorks was able to make needed improvements to its office and hire more employees, he said.
The husband and father of a young daughter occasionally volunteers to serve meals at two nonprofits. In work and in life, he often remembers the lessons of his father, a now-retired Wisconsin public defender. “He always made time for those who needed him,” Reid said. “No matter the field of work, that’s a recipe for success.”
