Washington D.C. (June 20, 2019) – Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox Directors Robert Greene Sterne and Tracy-Gene G. Durkin are among the world’s pre-eminent IP strategists named in the 2019 edition of IAM Strategy 300: The World’s Leading IP Strategists, published by Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) magazine. Those on the list are identified by IAM as “leading the way in the development and implementation of strategies that maximize the value of IP portfolios.”

This is the seventh consecutive year Sterne has earned this highly respected distinction, while Durkin is making her debut. Both IP standouts were selected following peer nominations and extensive research that involved both in-person and telephone interviews with senior members of the global IP community that were conducted by the IAM research team.

In addition to the IAM Strategy 300, Sterne and Durkin were two of the 14 Sterne Kessler attorneys named in IAM’s companion ranking publication, the IAM Patent 1000, a publication dedicated to recognizing leaders in the area of private patent practice around the world. In the 2019 edition of the IAM Patent 1000, the editors reported, “Sterne Kessler is a market leader thanks to global design protector, enforcer and strategist Tracy-Gene Durkin – a genius on graphical user interfaces.” They went on to extoll Sterne as, “an international all-round IP visionary [who has] published extensively on PTAB litigation.”
