Douglas J. Sorocco Named to 405 Business Magazine’s Inaugural Oklahoma City Metro Area Most Influential List

Dunlap Codding is pleased to announce that Shareholder and Director Douglas J. Sorocco was named to 405 Business Magazine’s list of the 250 most influential Oklahoma City metro area leaders. The listed individuals represent 10 different industry clusters as “some of the most influential executives and leaders in the area.” In its profile of Doug, the magazine quoted his response to “one thing to change to improve OKC?” He said, “We need a multi-innovator center where nonprofits, artists, innovators, creators and visionaries can build big things and try audacious plans. We are too spread out, all within our individual silos.” He also shared the advice that had most significantly affected his career, “One hand alone can’t clap…an Arab proverb that has always meant to me that nothing worth celebrating is ever truly done alone.”

In his legal practice, Doug represents clients in the areas of intellectual property, technology, licensing, life sciences, and patent law and is involved in litigation, counseling, and transactional work involving all aspects of intellectual property, including acquisition and commercialization of intellectual property, portfolio management, and licensing. He is ranked in the top band of Oklahoma’s intellectual property practitioners by the highly regarded Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.


DC On Film Row

About DC on Film Row

DC on Film Row is a free event space open to everyone in our community.

We like to say that the space is a “home for creatives and innovators, home builders and the homeless, celebrators and the celebrated” so people understand that we are inclusive and want everyone from throughout our community using our space.

Our goal is to celebrate the incredible diversity of creativity, innovation, and passion within Oklahoma City and to provide a venue—free of charge—to those groups and individuals working to bind us all together and make our home a cooler and better place. No strings attached—no extensive rules to follow. We simply ask that all of our neighbors be honored and that all viewpoints be respected. Our criteria for use is simple: If the event, group, or meeting is something which strengthens our community and brings us all together, the space is available for use.

The space has hosted everything from charitable fundraisers to an underground nightclub party to celebrate Canterbury Choral Society’s 45th anniversary season. We host dinners for the OKC homeless population most Monday evenings where upwards of 250 people are served—we provide the space and soft drinks and a local church provides the food. We’ve hosted university planning retreats and monthly local rock concerts.

Every Wednesday, we open up the courtyard for lunch, invite a local food truck to set up outside our gates, and welcome our downtown neighbors into the space for a bit of socialization.

Our never-ending soda fountain seems to be the biggest hit with some of our neighbors while others spend time playing pool or simply chatting about what is happening on the weekend.

For October we turn the space into a haunted house and invite the neighborhood children to come out and trick-or-treat.

Got an idea for how to use the space? Just ask us – we’re almost certain to say yes!
