Our trademark application fee is $1500.00 flat, which INCLUDES the $225.00 USPTO government fee for 1 trademark in 1 class of goods, so long as the trademark is currently being used in commerce. This is a full-service representation during the prosecution of your trademark application. Our firm completes a preliminary clearance search, drafts your application, and corresponds with the USPTO examining attorneys on your behalf during the trademark prosecution process. The full details for our flat fee trademark registration service are available here.
Usually no, if your trademark is currently being used in commerce and you haven chosen a distinctive trademark. If the trademark is not currently being used in commerce and your application is filed in advance on an intent-to-use basis, then additional fees will be required to file the required supplemental Statement of Use (if the trademark application is allowed by the USPTO). If the trademark application is refused by the USPTO due to conflicting trademarks or other legal issues, then additional fees may apply if you choose to appeal the refusal.
Usually about 10 to 12 months.

Yes. If you’re not currently using the trademark in commerce, but still want to register your trademark, we can reserve your trademark by filing an intent-to-use trademark application. In this case, the photographs (also known as specimens of use) are submitted at a later date in order to give the applicant additional time to start using the mark in commerce. Our service includes advising on this issue and coordinating submission of the specimens of use.
Possibly, but we’ll need to discuss first. International trademark applications are complicated and not all clients are eligible. Send us an email to schedule a free phone consultation.
Performing a basic index search of the USPTO TESS database (simply typing a word into the search box) is only the first step of the trademark search process. Several other searches are required to gain an accurate assessment of the availability of your trademark. It’s also important to consider that the main value of a trademark search is derived from a proper analysis of the search results, which requires advanced knowledge of trademark law and the trademark registration process. Give us a call so we can take a look.
In order to get started, we’ll need you to fill out a short questionnaire sign our engagement agreement, and pay your invoice online. Once these items are complete we’ll perform your trademark clearance search and file it with the USPTO within 2 business days.
