Crowe & Dunlevy PC has named director Margaret "Peggy" Millikin as co-chair of its intellectual property and technology practice group.
Also serving as co-chair is David Sullivan in the company's Oklahoma City office.
In the position, Millikin helps people leverage intellectual property assets to maximum advantage.
Millikin said everyone today owns or uses IP.
"I enjoy helping others create and protect new IP while guiding them to derive maximum value from the IP already in their care, through procurement, management and exploitation of these assets," she said.
Millikin previously served as in-house senior counsel with Fortune 500 companies in the East, where she managed the global IP portfolios, operations and litigation matters for several international business units. She led the IP work function in complex mergers and acquisition transactions where IP formed a critical component of the deal, traveling internationally.
A native of Missouri, Millikin has lived in eight states and 11 countries.
She earned her bachelor of science degree in petroleum engineering from the University of Tulsa and her juris doctor from the TU College of Law.
Millikin serves as vice president of professional development for the Society of Women Engineers, Oklahoma Northeast region.
Millikin said in addition to Crowe & Dunlevy's high standards for client service, she is inspired by the firm's commitment to public service.
"The Crowe & Dunlevy Foundation financially supports diverse charitable and nonprofit groups throughout the region," she said. "The firm also encourages our involvement in community activities and pro bono representation of those lacking the financial means to pay for quality legal services.
"My colleagues' concern for others and commitment to professional excellence motivate me daily to do my part."
