Dallas – The law firm of Thompson & Knight LLP is pleased to congratulate the Dallas chapter of the South Asian Bar Association (“SABA”) for being recognized as Affiliate of the Year by the State Bar of Texas Asian Pacific Interest Section (“APIS”). APIS will present the award to SABA Dallas at the Annual APIS Conference on April 9 in Austin. Thompson & Knight’s very own Shivan Mehta will be accepting the award on behalf of the organization.
Founded in 2003, the South Asian Bar Association of North America (SABA) is the fastest growing organization of South Asian lawyers in the world. However, there wasn’t a legitimate Dallas affiliate until 2014 when Thompson & Knight Associates Shivan Mehta and Vishal Patel partnered with Ebby Abraham and Johnson Kuncheria, both associates at Baker Botts in Dallas, and Jay Tatachar, an associate at Akin Gump in Dallas, to create a local SABA branch that would provide professional growth, advancement, networking, and service opportunities for South Asian lawyers.
