Elizabeth Isaac Named to Forty Under 40

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA—November 17, 2016—Dunlap Codding is pleased to announce that Elizabeth E. Isaac has been honored by the Oklahoma Gazette as a 2016 Forty Under 40 recipient. Recipients were feted with a cocktail reception at CHK | CENTRAL BOATHOUSE on November 15. The program honors "exceptional individuals who have made a significant contribution to shaping the Oklahoma City landscape."

Elizabeth's practice focuses on patent, design, trademark, and copyright law. After graduation from law school, Elizabeth returned to school to obtain additional education in the field of biological sciences, enabling her to sit for (and pass) the United States Patent and Trademark Office bar exam. She did so while working full time and serving as the inaugural Board Chair of IgniteOKC. In addition to serving as Event Chair, Elizabeth has spent well over 500 hours rebuilding what was initially a small group of volunteers hosting a one-night event into a fully formed non-profit organization.  Under her leadership, IgniteOKC formally organized around a board and committee chair structure to ensures that the organization's now numerous public community events became self-sustaining. Ignite OKC connects people of diverse backgrounds in support of collaboration, creativity, innovation, and leadership in Oklahoma City. 

In addition to her service to IgniteOKC, Elizabeth spearheaded Dunlap Codding's participation in PARK(ing) Day by managing a team of volunteers who designed and implemented a hands-on, mini science fair on Sheridan Avenue—interacting with and engaging children across the socioeconomic spectrum.  Elizabeth currently works closely with the Oklahoma Film + Music Office to provide resources and growth opportunities for local artists. In addition, Elizabeth is a member of LOYAL Class X11 of Leadership Oklahoma City; the first grade Sunday School teacher at St. Thomas Orthodox Church; the Vice Chair of Membership for Catalyst; a young professionals Board committed to supporting the local cultural community through Allied Arts; an active member of the women’s group, Lean In; and a regular volunteer at the Exchange (formerly Premier) on Film Row.
