CHARLESTON, S.C., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Intellectual property law firm Stipkala LLC marks 2009 as a year of record-breaking revenues and unprecedented growth. The firm now boasts a presence in Charleston, Cincinnati, Houston, and Washington, DC, and a clientele from around the world. Specializing in patent preparation, prosecution, licensing, and litigation, and focused on biotechnology, chemistry, nanotechnology, and pharmaceuticals, Stipkala LLC plans an even bigger year in 2010.
"Last year's economic recession hit the legal industry pretty hard," says patent attorney Jeremy M. Stipkala, who founded and manages Stipkala LLC. "But we have found a winning formula that emphasizes client service while keeping costs down." That formula works like magic on corporate clients managing tight resources. Stipkala LLC keeps its overhead low by forgoing extravagant offices and other unnecessary costs, while providing state-of-the-art research tools and practice resources for its attorneys and professionals. That relative frugality also allows Stipkala LLC to pay its workforce at above-market rates while charging clients significantly less than the market. "Some prospective clients are shocked by our low rates," says Dr. Stipkala. "It is fun to watch their expressions when we tell them, first, that all of our patent lawyers have Ph.D.s, and second, what our rates are."
Savvy clients are getting the message. 2009 revenues were up 15.9% over the previous best year, 2006. From his modest office near Charleston, SC, Dr. Stipkala declares the firm is ready for additional growth: "We are looking for more clients among innovative biotech, nanotech, chemical, and drug companies who know the value of their intellectual property, and want to protect that investment."
