Polsinelli Shareholder Leane K. Capps Honored in Dallas Business Journal’s 2018 Women in Business Awards

Leane K. Capps, a shareholder in Polsinelli’s Dallas office and a member of the firm’s commercial litigation practice group, has been selected as an honoree in the Dallas Business Journal’s 2018 Women in Business Awards, in recognition of her professional accomplishments and leadership throughout the North Texas community.

Currently, in its 11th year, the Women in Business awards program annually recognizes female leaders at Dallas-area companies across all sectors who not only excel in their current roles but have also risen through the ranks and made pivotal decisions for their organizations.

“It is no surprise Leane was named a Women in Business honoree, based on her many significant successes at both the local and national level,” said Jon Henderson, managing partner of Polsinelli’s Dallas office and chair of the firm’s national corporate and transactional practice group. “Leane is regularly recognized by peers and colleagues as one of the brightest legal minds, is trusted by prominent companies for their most critical litigation, and is a dedicated leader both within the profession and in the community.”

Capps represents distinguished clients in a wide variety of industries including sports, aviation and technology. She is a member of the firm’s sports law group and serves as a practice leader for the firm’s aviation group. Capps is also board certified in civil appellate law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Among other prominent representations, she is the lead trial counsel for the Big 12 Conference and Conference USA and currently represents them in significant antitrust and class action litigation.

Through her career Capps has helped raise women’s profiles in the law. Capps has been repeatedly included in the Best Lawyers in America and Texas Super Lawyers for her commercial litigation and appellate expertise. She was recognized by the Texas Diversity Counsel as one of Texas’ Most Powerful & Influential Women. She is also a senior fellow in the Litigation Counsel of America.
