The trademark application process can be lengthy and complicated. Hiring an attorney to handle the search, filing, and monitoring of your application not only increases the chance of successfully acquiring registration of your trademark, but it also frees up a significant amount of time for you to focus on growing your business.
With over eleven years of experience providing trademark services, our firm has developed a quality trademark search and application package offered at a reasonable flat fee.
Our Flat Fee Trademark Service
Our firm offers a flat fee service to complete a trademark search and application. We provide the following services as part of this package:
- Full US federal, state and common law trademark search
- Attorney consultation time
- Drafting and filing of your trademark application
- Monitoring of your application throughout the registration process
- Responding to non-substantive Office Actions
This is all done for our flat fee of $950. There’s also a government filing fee of $275 per class of goods or services. Depending on how many products or services you include in your application, that could ultimately affect the final filing fee you pay to the U.S. Government.
Our Trademark Application and Registration Process
Our trademark application and registration process typically looks the same from client to client. Below is an overview of each step of the process.
1. Complete our electronic engagement form.
We typically kick things off with an electronic engagement form that you can fill out on our website. Once this form is submitted, our attorneys will complete an initial review of your file and let you know if we have any questions.
2. Complete your trademark search.
If everything looks good with your file, we will go ahead and get your trademark search scheduled, which typically takes between a week to 10 days to complete. The trademark search itself takes us around three hours to do, so it requires reserving a bit of time in our work schedule to complete.
3. Schedule consultation time with an attorney.
Once we have finished your search, we send you a PDF file with your search report and opinion letter to review. In this email, there is an opportunity to schedule time with an attorney to go over the search and to answer any questions that you may have. Additionally, you can always reach out to us through email if you do not have time to arrange a phone call.
4. Review a draft of your application.
After you send us all the information we need to prepare your application, we will draft it and then send it over for your final review and approval.
5. Submit application to the USPTO.
Once you approve our draft, we will go ahead and file it with the USPTO and also send you a filing receipt with the serial number and other details of your submitted application.
6. Wait 8-10 months for USPTO review to issue your registration.
After filing, we’ll monitor the application for you, keeping you apprised as we go through the process. If everything is successful, we’ll mail you a registration certificate in about 8 to 10 months. Of course, you can reach out to us through email or phone throughout any stage of the process, and we’ll gladly update you on the status of your application.
If you have any further questions about our prices or process, please feel free to get in touch with us via email or just give us a call.
