OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA—March 1, 2016—Dunlap Codding is pleased to announce that Douglas J. Sorocco has been selected as a 2016 Client Service All Star based on interviews with more than 300 general counsel and legal decision-makers, according to BTI Consulting Group.  Doug was one of only 30 IP attorneys in the country chosen because of their focus on "client needs and goals, thought leadership, business understanding, legal skills, good value and outstanding results."  BTI president and founder Michael Rynowecer said that one reason these IP attorneys stood out to clients was "because of their ability to provide IP strategy in a way that enhances a company's goals....These attorneys look beyond the patent, trademark or IP issue in front of them and see the broader perspective....They see the impacts of IP law and where it is headed and provide advice, like when clients ought to change the way they apply for protection to avoid exposure or risk." 

Dunlap Codding's Managing Shareholder Nicholas D. Rouse said, "We have always known that Doug sets the gold standard for providing strategic counsel and superlative client service.  All of us at the firm continuously strive to emulate the example he sets."
