Registering on your own vs. through a trademark attorney

On the one hand, registering a trademark on your own is certainly a cheaper option, avoiding any extra fees charged by a trademark attorney. On the other hand, trademark applications filed by individuals (as opposed to trademark attorneys) have a higher rejection rate. Moreover, should you wish to register a trademark abroad, collaboration with a local trademark attorney may be one of the few options available.

Full service packages

Please note that trademark registration is more complex process than just paying the government fees. The process should always start with a comprehensive assessment of eligibility and similarity screening, making sure that the given trademark can in fact be registered successfully. The next step is a careful consideration of the goods and services selected in the application in order to achieve a balance between mitigating the risk of oppositions and ensuring effective brand protection. This type of services is provided by trademark attorneys and their fees vary significantly from around $200 to several thousands.
