(PRWEB) September 11, 2012
Dunlap Codding is pleased to announce that Nicholas D. Rouse and Joseph P. Titterington have been selected by attorney peers throughout the profession for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2013®, the oldest and most respected peer–review publication in the legal profession. Firm shareholder Doug Sorocco said "we're delighted that Nick and Joe have been named to Best Lawyers; the honor mirrors our own perception of their talents and skills in client care and legal excellence."
Nick Rouse, listed in The Best Lawyers of America 2013® in the fields of Patent Law and Trademark Law, has served as Dunlap Codding's managing shareholder since 2007 while continuing an active practice. In its inaugural coverage of intellectual property law in Oklahoma, the highly regarded Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business ranked Nick in the top band of leading practitioners. Nick provides a broad range of patent counseling to clients ranging from individual inventors to large multinational manufacturing companies. His practice includes patent preparation and prosecution, patent portfolio management, validity and infringement opinions, evaluations of new designs, and licensing strategy. Nick graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1987 with a B.S. in Petroleum Engineering, and received his J.D. from the University of Oklahoma College of Law in 1990. He is a member of the Intellectual Property Law Section of the Oklahoma Bar Association, and recently served as its president.
Joe Titterington, listed in The Best Lawyers of America 2013® in the field of Litigation – Intellectual Property, heads Dunlap Codding's litigation practice and focuses on the areas of complex commercial transactions, business tort, and intellectual property law. He has litigated cases throughout the United States involving diverse areas of the law including patent infringement, trademark infringement, copyright infringement, trade secret misappropriation, oil and gas, antitrust, and construction. Joe received his J.D. from the University of Oklahoma College of Law in 1980 and received his B.S. from Oklahoma State University in 1976.
Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer–review survey on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
