Alana Newhook '12 GC of Dallas Stars

As a law student, Alana Newhook dreamed of working as a lawyer for a professional hockey team. Five years later, the SMU Dedman School of Law alum is living that dream. “[Newhook] is already the envy of many attorneys as she has combined her legal skills and talents with her passion for hockey,” says FedEx Office GC Kimble Scott.

At age 29, Newhook may be the youngest corporate general counsel in Texas, but she understands that in-house lawyers must learn to bring value to their business.
