Crowe & Dunlevy Names Chair of Alternative Dispute Resolution Group
Crowe & Dunlevy recently named director Kent Meyers as chair of the firm’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Business & Litigation practice group. Attorneys in this practice group are dedicated in resolving complex issues with creativity and efficiency. They have experience in class action matters, intellectual property and family practice dispute resolutions. The members are also recognized among the top in their field.
Meyers’ practice focuses on commercial litigation and antitrust law. He has tried antitrust and complex commercial litigation cases, and has handled patent, copyright and trademark matters. He has also handled numerous arbitration matters both as counsel for litigant and as an arbitrator.
Throughout Meyers’ 50-year career, he has tried and mediated many landmark cases. Some of these include an antitrust case against the NCAA, litigating multiple cases of legislation for the Indianapolis 500 and leading the legal team representing the Oklahoma Education Association in opposition to the Tabor Petition. The petition dealt with taxpayers’ bill of rights and was eventually struck down by the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
Chambers USA has listed Meyers as a leading lawyer in Oklahoma. He has also been listed in The Best Lawyers in America every year it has been published. In the most recent edition, he was listed in Antitrust, Bankruptcy and Creditor-Debtor Rights Law, Commercial Litigation and Bet-the-Company Litigation. Meyers received his Juris Doctor from The University of Oklahoma School of Law and his Masters of Law from Harvard Law School.
He is one of two co-founders of Oklahoma Lawyers for Children, a nonprofit group that provides volunteer lawyers to work with Public Defenders in representing deprived children in Juvenile Court. Meyers also is the co-host of “The Verdict,” a weekly local TV show.
