Josh R. Thane Selected as a 2018-2019 Nominating Chair by Texas Bar Foundation


Josh R. Thane with Haltom & Doan has been selected to serve as a Texas Bar Foundation 2018-2019 Nominating Chair for District 1. Nominating Chairs for each of the 17 State Bar of Texas districts identify elite nominees to join the Foundation as Fellows. Nominating Chairs of the Foundation are selected for their outstanding professional achievements and their demonstrated commitment to the Texas Bar Foundation. Election is a mark of distinction and recognition of Mr. Thane’s contributions to
the legal profession.

Josh is a past President of the Texarkana Bar Association and has successfully represented clients in over 100 cases in both federal and state courts in Texas and Arkansas. Recently, he and a trial team from Haltom & Doan garnered a heralded win for Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company in a patent infringement case in East Texas after six years of litigation. Josh regularly represents companies in the enforcement of their intellectual property rights and other complex commercial litigation. Most importantly, however, he enjoys connecting with his
clients, both corporate and individual, to help them achieve successful results.

Selection as a Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation is restricted to members of the State Bar of Texas. Each year the top one-third of one percent of Texas attorneys are invited to become Fellows. Once nominees are selected, they must be elected by the Texas Bar Foundation Board of Trustees. Membership has grown from an initial 255 Charter Members in 1965 to more than 9,500 Fellows throughout Texas today. If you are a Fellow and have a recommendation for a new member, please contact your District Nominating Chair.
