The May 2020 edition of D CEO magazine profiled Haynes and Boone, LLP Partner Sakina Rasheed Foster as one of the region’s most influential business leaders. Editors based their selections on discussions with numerous contacts in local business circles and hundreds of interviews.
Foster is featured among the “Dallas 500,” which provides a personal, engaging look at the leaders who make the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) economy tick. In the profile, she discusses her involvement with the Dallas Bar Association (DBA), nonprofit work, toughest challenge, and thoughts about the future.
Here is an excerpt of her profile:
From her Haynes and Boone office in Victory Park, attorney Sakina Foster diligently handles complex loans as a partner in the firm’s finance practice group. She’s also an advocate for diversity, equality, and civility, actively participating in numerous organizations and serving on the board of the Dallas Bar Association.
“The DBA is an outstanding organization that focuses on serving the legal profession in Dallas,” she says. “I am proud to have the opportunity to work alongside the lawyers on its board.”
She also discussed her work with Orchid Giving Circle at Texas Women’s Foundation, saying it has a special place in her heart. “It is a group of Asian American women in North Texas who pool their resources to provide grants for organizations that focus on giving back to people in need in the Asian-American community.”
Partners Mike Boone, Tim Powers and Jeff Dorrill were also recognized in the D CEO “Dallas 500” directory for 2020. Read more here.
