The Oklahoma Bar Association (OBA) recently selected Brooke Murphy, a director at Crowe & Dunlevy, as this year’s recipient of the John E. Shipp Award for Ethics. The OBA’s highest ethics award is given to an attorney for their outstanding commitment to enhancing the legal profession.
“We are honored to have Brooke as such an integral part of the firm,” said Roger Stong, president of Crowe & Dunlevy. “She is not only an outstanding litigator, but she is also a valued mentor and leader to our younger associates.”
Murphy’s civil trial practice focuses on business, securities and insurance litigation, including related class actions. She has represented major Oklahoma and national companies in contesting class certification, and also represents general business clients in their litigation. Her publications and lectures include subjects such as evidence, procedure, arbitration, insurance, punitive damages, trade secrets and medical staff issues.
In 1975, Murphy joined Crowe & Dunlevy and in 1981 she became the first female director at the firm. From 2006-2008, she served as firm president.
Murphy graduated magna cum laude from the University of Wisconsin Law School where she was named to the Order of the Coif, served on the Wisconsin Law Review and was the recipient of the Joseph Davies Award for being the Outstanding Second Year Student.
