I read reputable firm to mean law firm.  I like to think the best practitioners work for companies that are using and developing the art.  However, this is likely an inaccurate generalization.  As I, both of the patent attorneys that trained me worked for a large semiconductor company.  Further, I’ve seen some patent agents that do a better job than some patent attorneys.  
 
Accepting generalizations can also be bad advice.

Right.
 
That's also not to say that private practitioners aren't, or could not be, every bit as competent.
 
Just to clarify any confusion about licensing, an attorney is no more entitled to administer a license agreement than someone off the street.  That aside, naturally you'd want to seek someone who could yield results for you.  But, that goes without saying.
 
It's rather ironic that someone, who starts a thread cautioning readers against dubious advice, would be so quick to give it.

One of the primary reasons that I participate in this forum is because I witness so many people receiving improper advice.
