Flat attorney fees provide greater transparency and certainty for clients seeking to budget IP protection such as patent applications (aka patent prosecution) and trademark applications (aka trademark prosecution). Innovation Capital Law Group publishes a fixed fee schedule for trademark prosecution which includes a total cost from start to finish assuming no rejections. Trademark applications tend to have a narrower range of ongoing costs than patent applications due to less complex subject matter. A trademark search can substantially reduce the risk of a rejection from a USPTO examining attorney, thereby reducing costs and shortening the application process.
