Sterne Kessler was noted by The American Lawyer Litigation Daily in its October 27, 2015, article on leading patent litigation firms – the same article was also featured on law.com.
In the article, Sterne Kessler is lauded for its leadership on matters before the United States Patent and Trademark Office's Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). The article cites a Managing Intellectual Property article about the volume of PTAB litigation in the first six months of 2015, where Sterne Kessler is among the national leaders. In fact, Sterne Kessler has filed and/or defended more cases before the PTAB than any firm in the US since the AIA established new post-grant proceedings.
In March, Sterne Kessler was named the first-ever "PTAB Firm of the Year" by Managing Intellectual Property magazine, which recognized the firm for its superior work representing both petitioners and patent owners before the PTAB.
