The practice at Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox is dedicated to the protection, transfer and enforcement of intellectual property rights. We are distinguished by the level of technical know-how held by our team of professionals, including attorneys, registered patent agents, students and technical specialists. More than half of Sterne Kessler lawyers have earned doctorate degrees in science or engineering - credentials wide and deep enough to fill the faculty of a science-oriented university.
Founded in 1978 and based in Washington, DC, we represent a broad range of clients, including emerging and established companies, venture capital firms, universities and select individuals in bleeding edge tech fields like carbon footprint technologies, pharmacogenomics, nanomedicine, biofuels, bioprocessing, next generation electronics and other consumer products.
We hire the best, brightest and most qualified personnel. Our attorneys and agents are carefully recruited for their technical expertise that often includes advanced technical degrees, significant industry experience or both. All of our patent prosecution attorneys are either registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office or are registration eligible. Many have previously worked as Patent Examiners and have unique insights into the inner workings of the Patent Office. They are backed by a host of experienced support and management staff. – less–ZoomInfo
