Managing Intellectual Property magazine’s 2015 IP Stars Patent Survey — an annual ranking of the top-rated firms within the patent industry – has recognized Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox with “Tier One” classifications in the United States for Patent Prosecution, PTAB Litigation, and Bio/Life Sciences. This year marks the survey’s inaugural ranking of PTAB Litigation firms.

Researchers in New York, London, and Hong Kong spend six months gathering firm feedback from thousands of practitioners in order to provide IP firm rankings for over 80 countries. In the United States, the various firms are divided into up to five tiers within each IP category, based off of the impartial data collected up to January 2015.
