FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Nicholas D. Rouse, Managing Shareholder 405-607-8600

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA – January 11, 2012 – Dunlap Codding is pleased to announce that Jeffrey R. Anderson has joined the firm. Anderson practices in all areas of intellectual property, with an emphasis on managing IP portfolios, negotiating complex intellectual property transactions and agreements, and drafting and prosecuting patent applications.  Prior to attending law school, Jeff gained significant field experience as an engineer.

Nick Rouse, Dunlap Codding’s Managing Shareholder said, “Jeff’s experience in house will be a significant benefit to our clients; he clearly understands their goals and constraints.  His deep knowledge of chemistry and engineering will also be valuable for clients.  We’re delighted he has chosen to join us.”  Anderson served as senior patent counsel for well-regarded companies such as ConocoPhillips and KiOR, Inc., a next generation renewable fuels company, prior to joining Dunlap Codding. 

At KiOR, Anderson served as the sole in-house counsel and was responsible for managing the company’s trademark and patent portfolio.  He worked with KiOR’s Vice President of Research & Development to establish and execute an IP and research strategy, among other accomplishments.  At ConocoPhillips, he negotiated complex, multi-million dollar, intellectual property transactions including research and technology in-licensing, served as the sole attorney supporting two major licensing programs, prepared and prosecuted multiple patent applications, and oversaw (and prepared) infringement, validity, and freedom-to-operate opinions in support of business unit objectives.  “I have enjoyed my experiences at KiOR and ConocoPhillips,” noted Anderson.  “I’m excited to join Dunlap Codding.  Their collegial atmosphere and deep understanding of client requirements, as well as their innovative approach to strategy, are very attractive.”

Anderson graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Law, receiving his J.D. with honors in 1997.  He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical and Petroleum Refining Engineering in 1985 from the Colorado School of Mines.

Established in 1957 as Oklahoma’s original intellectual property firm, Dunlap Codding remains the state’s largest and most versatile IP boutique.

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!
