Sekou Lewis

General Counsel at Dallas Mavericks

Sekou Lewis was appointed general counsel for the Dallas Mavericks in 2018. The move to Dallas represents a homecoming of sorts for Lewis, who worked as a leadership and player development specialist for IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida before coming to law school. Lewis played basketball professionally for Caudillos de Morelos in Mexico after receiving his BA from American University, where he played on the Division I Men’s Basketball Team.

From 2012 until July 2018, Lewis was an associate at Schnader Harrison, representing private and public companies, nonprofit organizations and municipalities in real estate and corporate matters. He also served as vice chair of the firm’s Sports Law team. During his tenure at Schnader, he also served on the Juvenile Law Center board of directors.
