KEY FACTORS
That Can Impact Cost​

  • Intent to Use
  • Office Actions
  • Oppositions

If at the time your application is filed, you are not using your trademark in US commerce for all of the goods/services covered by your application, your application will be filed based on your intent to use the mark (with some limited exceptions).

When you file based on your intent to use a mark, you are required to file a Statement of Use (or if the application is still pending USPTO review -- an Allegation of Use) before the application can register. These filings have both legal and government fees. The amount will depend upon the number of trademark classes your application covers and how long it takes you to start use in commerce for all the goods/services included in your application.

Check out our interactive fee calculator above to calculate your costs.

An Office Action is a refusal letter from the USPTO that explains why the trademark examining attorney believes that the trademark application either cannot be registered or requests that the Applicant provide additional information or make modifications to an application.

If an Office Action issues on an application I filed for you, I'll report the Office Action to you. Once I know what the issues are, I'll be able to provide you with a flat fee quote for preparing a response. If you do not wish to respond to the Office Action, I will not take further action and your application will be abandoned.

If the USPTO trademark examining attorney approves your application, it will be published. During the 30-day publication period, if any third-party that believes your application should not be entitled to registration, they can file a Notice of Opposition (or request an Extension of Time to file a Notice of Opposition).

Defending a Notice of Opposition is outside the scope of any filing fees you paid. The cost to defend a Notice of Opposition can vary widely.
