Alyssa Grooms is an intellectual property attorney at Dunlap Codding. She focuses her practice on patent drafting and prosecution, licensing, prior art searches, and patentability analysis; as well as licensing and other IP-related transactions.

Alyssa Grooms was born and raised in the southwest Chicago suburbs. Alyssa attended college at Northwestern University and the University of Illinois, where she studied Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. During undergrad, Alyssa gained valuable work experience through Chemical Engineering intern positions at Citgo Petroleum Corporation and Flint Hills Resources. Upon graduating and finding herself wanting to be closer to her parents (who had since moved out of Illinois) and farther from harsh winters, Alyssa made her way to Oklahoma City as a law student at Oklahoma City University School of Law. She graduated in the top 10% of her class and was involved in various school organizations, including serving as a Student Instructor and a member of Law Review.

Alyssa Grooms enjoys staying active in the Oklahoma City community through volunteering and participating in athletic leagues. Growing up in a family of college athletes, athletics have always been a huge part of Alyssa’s life. She also serves on the Board of Directors for IgniteOKC and is part of the United Way of Central Oklahoma Board Serve program, which connects business professionals with United Way partner agencies. Alyssa was also recently honored with a NextGen Under 30 award recognizing individuals who demonstrate talent, drive, and service to their communities.

In her spare time, you can find Alyssa working on her golf game with her husband, Keegan, or hiking with their two dogs, Claude and Carl.
