Dunlap Codding Attorney Elizabeth Isaac Named a 2017 Achiever Under 40

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA—March 24, 2017—Dunlap Codding is pleased to announce that Elizabeth E. Isaac has been honored by The Journal Record as a 2017 Achiever Under 40 recipient. This year, the 39 honorees were selected from a group of 139 nominees from Oklahoma. The  2017 honorees will be honored at a luncheon on May 18 in Oklahoma City. Nick Rouse, Managing Director and Shareholder at Dunlap Codding, said, “We agree with the sentiments of The Journal Record. It’s important to recognize the already significant contributions of this select group of future leaders while looking forward to their future successes. We are proud of Elizabeth and congratulate her for being in such good company.” 

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 countless 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 ensure 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 works with the Oklahoma Film + Music Office to provide resources and growth opportunities for local artists. In addition, Elizabeth is a recent graduate of LOYAL Class X11 of Leadership Oklahoma City (during which she served the needs of Heartline Oklahoma, an organization operating a Suicide Prevention Lifeline); 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. 

Dunlap Codding P.C., with offices in Austin, Chicago, Oklahoma City, and Washington, D.C., serves sophisticated international, national, and regional clients. Established in 1957 as Oklahoma’s original intellectual property firm, Dunlap Codding remains the state’s largest and most versatile IP boutique law firm.

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!
