Director Carla Ji-Eun Kim was quoted in the Managing IP article “Not So Secret Agents: Firms Eye Patent Drafting Efficiencies” about how law firms have increasingly hired patent agents for drafting patent applications. Following is an excerpt from the article:

Carla Ji-Eun Kim, chair of the patent prosecution practice at Sterne Kessler in Washington DC, notes that if a technology is complicated, a patent agent with an advanced technical degree may understand it better…Kim says Sterne Kessler is open to bringing on anyone who’s smart and talented, without focusing on their title…“The end goal is that we want everyone to be patent attorneys so that they can practise every aspect of patent law,” she says.”
