Corporate Trademark & Logo Searches

A corporate-level trademark (brand) search provides a professional-level search and availability and protectability opinion.  The firm's searches and opinions are quality-driven with sensitivity to costs.  (re-direct for basic) 

Corporate-level trademark searches and opinions are provided on an hourly-rate basis ($240 per hour plus any out-of-pocket costs).  Minimum of $720.  Retainer required.

Written cost estimates are provided on request at the earliest practical point.  Clients are alerted of any issues that could throw off the target costs when detected.

Preliminary cost estimates (prior to retention, prior to subject disclosure) are available upon request, and are based upon search subject as then understood.

Costs depend on:

  • issues presented and their complexity

  • number of features (words and/or graphics) being searched, alone or in combination

  • extent of in-depth investigation

  • prior field magnitude

A new trademark search typically starts with an inquiry by telephone or email.  Before receiving any sensitive information, the subject must be screened to exclude conflicts with trademark matters currently being handled or handled in the past.

Working towards a client's target is the firm's goal at every step of the trademark application process.
