Stipkala LLC is now Thrive IP®. Why the change? Our philosophy stands on service, and the focus centers on relationships. We want to help our clients to succeed – to help them Thrive. We focus on each client’s intellectual property needs, whether “defensive IP” – avoiding the infringement of others’ rights, or “protective IP” – protecting and enforcing the client’s rights against infringers and copyists. We apply many tools, including patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, licensing, freedom-to-operate analysis, opinions and counseling, and litigation. Our patent attorneys hold degrees in chemical and engineering disciplines. Significantly, we provide intellectual property legal services to advance the client’s business goals. And, we deliver that service at market-competitive rates that reflect extensive market research and significant efforts to keep our costs low. Consider our services and practice areas, and contact us at your convenience. We serve clients across the country and around the world from our offices in Charleston, SC and Greenville, SC.
