Washington D.C. (May 17, 2019) – For the tenth time, Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox has been named by the Washington Business Journal among the “Best Places to Work in Greater Washington.” Only one of two law firms among over 100 employers recognized to receive the distinction, Sterne Kessler placed among the top 20 in the “Extra Large Companies” category.

The annual Washington Business Journal “Best Places to Work” list recognizes employers that foster a culture of employee engagement. The rankings are based completely on quantitative research gathered from anonymous survey responses from employees, rather than a panel of outside judges.

“This recognition is particularly special to us as we are celebrating our 40th anniversary. To be recognized consistently as a best place to work in Washington, D.C. by our own employees is humbling. At Sterne Kessler, we will continue our commitment to cultivating an environment that fosters respect, collegiality and collaboration,” said Michael B. Ray, the firm’s managing director.

In addition to Sterne Kessler’s status as one of the premier intellectual property law firms in the country, the firm has a long-standing reputation as a great place to work as evidenced by this award and is further validated by its inclusion for the past five years among The Washington Post’s “Top Workplaces” list. Attorneys and staff are attracted to the firm not only for its friendly law-firm culture, but also for its top-tier work for a broad range of notable clients ranging from the world’s leading innovators, individual inventors and startups to renowned universities and Fortune 500 companies.

The top-rated companies in four size categories — small, medium, large and extra-large — are honored by the Washington Business Journal as “Best Places to Work.”
