SBS‘s outside General Counsel has been brought in house, and will now hold the title of EVP/General Counsel at the Miami-based Hispanic-controlled media and entertainment company.
Richard D. Lara, previously a co-owner and managing shareholder at Miami boutique trial law firm Mase Lara Eversole P.A., will now be responsible for all legal matters at SBS, including developing and implementing the company’s legal strategy.
He reports directly to SBS Chairman/CEO and President Raúl Alarcón Jr.
Consider it a reward for Lara’s successful October 2016 victory of a $8 million lawsuit brought against SBS for the airing of a film on its Mega TV that it unknowingly purchased for a bootlegger.
Lara is an active member of the community and was a 2013 Miami Man of the Year nominee, raising funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
