“Peers highly recommend Sterne Kessler as among the best in patent prosecution. "A number of people over there are very well-known for doing very good quality work," says one senior lawyer. Another lawyer says that, unlike other firms that look at prosecution as an afterthought, "this is what Sterne does for a living". One competitor who frequently competes with Sterne Kessler for lateral hires says lawyers typically go to the firm because of "the history of their life sciences practice, the depth – it's well-established and well thought of."
