Dentons' Thomas Hyatt Named Outstanding Lawyer by American Bar Association
Dentons, the global law firm, today announced that Thomas K. Hyatt, partner in the firm's Health Care practice, received the 2017 Outstanding Lawyer Award from the Nonprofit Organizations Committee of the American Bar Association, Business Law Section.
Hers is a ground-breaking career filled with “firsts” and “onlys”. Jana Barbe was the first woman appointed to the Dentons’ Global Board, and for five years, she was the only woman to serve on the Firm’s Global Board, as it led Dentons' growth and evolution into the largest law firm in the world. Jana was also the Firm's first Global Vice Chair appointed from the United States region, a position she helped define while deftly navigating boardroom and cross-cultural dynamics.
Widely recognized for her sanguine and skillful handling of complex risk and management challenges, Jana also was the first and only woman to chair the Firm's preeminent Real Estate Practice and the Firm's Financial Institutions Sector, successfully leading and managing both through boom-times and recessions.
At the same time Jana served the Firm in these many leadership roles, she also founded and cultivated one of the largest practices in the Firm - the Tax Oriented Investments practice which Jana continues to grow and manage. Jana advises many of the nation's leading financial institutions and insurance companies in connection with affordable housing and community development investments, as she has for more than 25 years. A foremost authority on low income housing tax credits, Jana’s depth and breadth of expertise in this unique and highly specialized field is unmatched. She has personally closed in excess of US$7 billion in low income housing tax credit investments on behalf of Dentons clients, and leads an equally talented team of highly substantive and practical tax credit professionals.
Firm clients have said:
"Having known and worked with Jana for 25 years, it gives me great pleasure to speak about her outstanding client service. She truly is one of the foremost authorities in our industry. Jana is smart, practical and solution-driven. She understands our highly complex business and has a keen insight into what is critical. Day or night, Jana is incredibly responsive and always delivers."
"What makes Jana such an outstanding lawyer are her high standards and high integrity. She is extremely thorough and client-service focused. She has a deep understanding of what we need and what's important to us from both a practical and business perspective. Her approach is diligent and innovative, and always with our business interests in mind. Jana is a pleasure to work with."
"Jana is unique in that she sees things from many different directions, anticipating issues and opportunities. Jana asks all the right questions and is very practical and solution-oriented, which makes her so effective on delivering sound advice to complex matters. Two years ago, when we decided we needed better legal representation we interviewed the top six firms in the industry and Jana (and her team) came out far ahead of her competition during that process. I am happy to say that our opinion of her has only improved over the course of our working together."
Jana is also an impassioned advocate for women in law and in business. A frequent speaker and writer on professional advancement and leadership, Jana is dedicated to expanding a woman's opportunities and paths to success. Jana joined Dentons' predecessor firm, Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, 20 years ago in a part-time capacity and is the only woman in the Firm's history to have become an equity partner on a part-time schedule. She works every day to support and advance women in the Firm and to ensure that record is broken.
Equally committed to serving her community, she is the president emerita of Thresholds, Illinois' oldest and largest provider of supportive services and housing to individuals with severe and persistent mental illnesses. Her service to Thresholds, which is recognized as one of the Chicago Tribune’s “Top Workplaces,” has spanned more than 25 years.
