Washington D.C. (April 24, 2020) – Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox is proud to announce that Chambers USA has again given the firm a “Band 1” ranking among Washington, D.C.’s leading intellectual property law firms in the area of patent prosecution. Sterne Kessler is the only firm in the Band 1 position for 2020. This recognition marks the 18th consecutive year that this definitive professional guide has rated the firm among the best-of-the-best firms in the United States for patent law, including patent prosecution and handling matters at the USPTO Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).

Specifically, the editors of the Chambers & Partners guide praise Sterne Kessler for “its ability to prepare and prosecute utility, design and covered business method patents for companies active in a variety of industry sectors including computer software and engineering and life sciences” and for achievements in USPTO proceedings. Client comments included in the profile commend the firm for “phenomenal depth and level of expertise” as well as outstanding customer service. To view the complete firm profile, please click here.

This most recent Chambers ranking was announced just weeks after Sterne Kessler was named “2020 PTAB Firm of the Year” by Managing Intellectual Property (MIP) magazine – the third time the firm has earned this recognition since the award was established in 2014. The MIP award recognizes Sterne Kessler’s superior work representing both petitioners and patent owners before the PTAB and further established the firm’s supremacy in the post-America Invents Act era on matters involving inter partes review, post grant review, derivation, and covered business method proceedings.
