“Thompson & Knight picks Mark Sloan as new managing partner”
Dallas-based Thompson & Knight announced Tuesday that real estate and banking law partner Mark M. Sloan will be the law firm’s next managing partner.

Sloan, a 1990 graduate of SMU Dedman School of Law, replaces prominent tax law partner Emily Parker as the firm’s leader in February 2016. Parker was Thompson & Knight’s first woman partner and one of the few women to lead a Texas law firm.

Sloan represents lenders in virtually all types of real estate financings. T&K, which opened its offices in 1887, has more than 300 lawyers and is known for its energy law practice.
