Attorney Margaret Minister O’Keefe ’89 Advocates for Artists (Maine Magazine)

Margaret Minister O'Keefe '89


Margaret Minister O’Keefe ’89 is featured in the latest issue of Maine magazine for her legal work protecting and supporting artists.

As an intellectual property attorney at the Portland, Maine law firm Pierce Atwood, O’Keefe represents clients in the music, design, art, software and biotechnology industries.

“I love looking at complicated issues: products with lots of design, borrowed images, copy, music,” says O’Keefe in the January/February 2012 issue of Maine magazine.

“I just love untangling all that to determine whether you have appropriate permissions, whether you’ve protected your original work. That’s the fun part—that untangling. It’s the intersection of art, design and law.”

Graduating summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa with a major in government from Bowdoin, O’Keefe went on to earn her law degree from Harvard Law School.
