WASHINGTON, DC (June 17, 2016) – Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox has been recognized by The Washington Post among 150 of the “Top Workplaces” in the Greater Washington, DC area for the third consecutive year. The Washington Post’s Top Workplaces distinction spotlights private, public, nonprofit and government agencies with the highest ratings from their employees based on a survey administered by Workplace Dynamics.

This year, Sterne Kessler is one of only seven law firms present in the rankings. In profiling the firm, The Washington Post editors highlighted the firm for its: tech spec/patent agent program allowing them to attend law school while the firm “picks up the entire tuition tab“; in-house barista bar that is free for employees and their guests; and its unique pro bono practice, which integrates legal concepts from the areas of Intellectual Property law with Economic, Social, and Cultural human rights to empower disenfranchised and impoverished communities seeking to promote their economic and social development by leveraging their IP assets.

The Washington Post selects companies for the “Top Workplace” recognition based solely on employee feedback from across the Greater Washington, DC area. The process began with surveying employees to nominate deserving companies, a questionnaire was then disseminated to employees in the region and concluded with workplaces being ranked according to both size and employee reviews.
