- Starting salary only $140k (no lockstep increases. $20-25k less than comparable IP market)
- They represent entirely too many NPE
- Was not hearing good things about them around town.
One positive that I would say about them is that they are really aggressive on the new Inter Partes Review. So as a prosecution associate, you might get good experience on that front.
OP here again.
Thanks for the info.
Do you or anyone else know of any place to go to for more non-biased "reviews" of firms?
Never realized making this decision would be this difficult. I was leaning towards Sterne Kessler because I liked the idea of being in a place surrounded by like-minded former scientists. But the few comments I've gotten from non-Sterne Kessler people have made this decision a bit more difficult.
Would anyone else comment why Foley & Lardner would be a better choice over Sterne Kessler?
