Patent and Trademark Costs

We charge for our service and out of pocket expenses incurred in your case. We generally bill at an hourly rate for our service with flat fees quoted for selected projects on your behalf. Out of pocket expenses include draftsman charges for drawing an invention or a logo, filing and other fees at the Patent & Trademark Office or the Copyright Office, or search agent costs, among other things. For other legal matters, we will discuss and explain fees and costs with you. Receipts for our out of pocket expenses are sent with your bill.

Generally we send you a bill when work is performed. As an example, in patent applications, much work occurs at the beginning and a bill is sent upon filing a patent application. Then the patent application will go dormant for over a year when no bill is sent. When work resumes in your patent application, we will send a bill. Copyright applications generally have a flat fee. Where a legal representation has more frequent activity, such as litigation, bills are sent monthly.

As a convenience for our clients, we accept checks, major credit cards, money orders, cash, wire transfer and Paypal®. Foreign patent applications require a deposit.
