Describing Pam as “extremely knowledgeable, commercial and well-connected, and with an impressive breadth of experience,” IAM writes “she concentrates on patent and technology licensing, as well as brand management and licensing. On the patent and technology side, flash memory technology is a particular strength. … Clients typically instruct the firm on high-value licensing arrangements; the key partner contact in this regard is Pamela Deese, who focuses almost exclusively on licensing.”

Arent Fox is described as a “District of Columbia staple” that has “an inherent ability to understand the business implications of complex licensing transactions based on many years of experience in this area of practice.”
