Practice/Organization Description

Intellectual property issues have never been more complex or challenging than they are right now. The passage of the American Invents Act adds to the challenge.

The pace of innovation, too, has never been faster. New technology inventions and scientific discoveries are being introduced daily and embraced almost as quickly -- with the accompanying threats of piracy and plagiarism. The choice of IP legal counsel has never been more critical.

Depth of technical know-how is our intellectual property.

Founded in 1978 and based in Washington, DC, Sterne Kessler is dedicated exclusively to the protection, transfer and enforcement of intellectual property rights. Our team of attorneys, registered patent agents, students and technical specialists include some of the country's most respected practitioners of intellectual property law. Most of our professionals hold an advanced level degree, including more than 50 with doctorates in science and engineering -- credentials wide and deep enough to fill the faculty of a science-oriented university.

We hire the best, brightest and most qualified personnel.

We recruit attorneys and agents specifically for their technical expertise, industry experience and litigation prowess. All of our patent prosecution attorneys are registered to practice (or eligible to register) before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Many have previously worked as Patent Examiners and have unique insights into the inner workings of the Patent Office.

A broad range of clients in very specialized industries.

Our client base includes emerging and established companies, venture capital firms, individual entrepreneurs and universities -- from bleeding edge technology fields like carbon footprint technologies, pharmacogenomics, nanomedicine and biofuels to next generation electronics and other consumer products.
