The Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency is an advertising agency on Madison Avenue in New York City.

Sterling Cooper was founded by Bertram Cooper and Roger Sterling, Sr. in 1923.

In the fall of 1962, the firm was merged with the British firm; Puttnam, Powell, and Lowe. ("Meditations in an Emergency")

Because of the impending sale of Puttnam, Powell, and Lowe to McCann Erickson, Lane Pryce was convinced to free Don Draper, Bertram Cooper, and Roger Sterling from their employment contracts to start Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. ("Shut the Door. Have a Seat")
