RQ&N Shareholder, Matthew M. Cannon, has been appointed by Governor Gary R. Herbert, and confirmed by the Senate, to the Southern Utah University Board of Trustees.

Mr. Cannon received his B.A. in English and Political Science at SUU, as he concluded a four-year career as starting quarterback, slotback and punter for the SUU Thunderbirds.  While at SUU, he set four NCAA Division I records and numerous SUU records, securing him a spot in an elite group of just three Thunderbird athletes to have their number forever retired.  He went on to play professional football in Germany, before returning to Utah to complete his J.D. at Brigham Young University.

A member of Ray Quinney & Nebeker’s litigation section, Mr. Cannon focuses his practice on prosecuting and defending commercial litigation matters. His practice includes antitrust and trade regulation law, intellectual property law, and general litigation.  He has been recognized as a Rising Star by Mountain States Super Lawyers in the categories of Business Litigation, Antitrust Litigation and Intellectual Property Litigation and has also been voted by his peers throughout the state as one of Utah’s “Legal Elite” in the category of Up and Coming (as published in Utah Business Magazine).
