The cost of hiring our trademark attorneys to register your federal trademark with the USPTO can vary widely, depending on several factors. These factors include the complexity of the trademark, the number of classes of goods or services the trademark application covers, and any additional services our attorneys may provide. That said, the average cost of hiring our trademark attorneys to register one (1) trademark (whether it is a word mark, design mark, or a word plus design mark) in one (1) trademark class will be $950 (which includes the $250 USPTO TEAS Plus application fee).
In addition to our attorney’s fees, there are also government fees associated with filing a trademark application. The USPTO charges a filing fee for each class of goods or services listed in the application. These fees vary depending on the filing option selected. For example, the TEAS Plus filing option requires a fee of $250 per class, while the TEAS Standard option costs $350 per class. The filing fees are non-refundable, regardless of whether the application is ultimately approved or not.
The overall cost of registering a federal trademark with the help of our trademark attorneys can also be influenced by additional services that we may provide your Jacksonville business. For example, throughout the registration process, various issues may arise that could require additional legal work. For instance, if the USPTO examining attorney issues an Office Action, we may need to draft a response addressing the concerns raised in the Office Action. This additional work can add to the overall cost.
Similarly, if an opposition is filed against your trademark during the publication stage, the cost of addressing the opposition or negotiating a settlement will depend on the complexity of the dispute. In some cases, this can significantly increase the overall cost of registering a federal trademark.
In summary, the cost of hiring our trademark attorneys to register your federal trademark with the USPTO can vary , depending on the attorney’s fees, the number of classes of goods or services in the application, and any additional legal work required throughout the process. We are transparent with our fee structure and potential costs that will be incurred in registering your trademark. While the costs of registering a federal trademark with the USPTO are not insignificant, the protection and benefits offered by a federally registered trademark can be a worthwhile investment for any Jacksonville business seeking to safeguard their intellectual property rights.
