Rob Sterne graduated Tufts with a BSEE (73) and MS (75) and then went to law school (JD, UMD, 77) at a time when electrical engineers almost never became attorneys. In 1978, at the age of 26, he walked away from his good job and founded his law firm, now called Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox, which is located in Washington, DC. From 3 people it has grown to be the 32nd largest intellectual property law firm practice in the US with over 340 people.
As one of the leading patent attorneys of the baby boomer generation, he has represented or been adverse to some of the most famous technology entrepreneurs, start-ups, mature companies, universities, governments and investors over the last 35 years.
He views his education at Tufts as pivotal to his professional success. It provided a highly diverse and stimulating educational environment that gave him the initial tools in technology, law and business that have allowed him to start and build a great law firm. He will share why his Tufts education has been such a benefit along with his insights and recommendations on how to achieve professional success.
