Are there any flat fee attorneys for trademark oppositions or cancellations?

My firm, Innovation Capital Law Group, offers a hybrid flat rate attorney’s fees for IP matters, including a fee schedule of attorney’s fees and cost estimates for TTAB trademark oppositions and cancellations. Keep in mind that trademark opposition attorney fees may still vary for certain projects such as discovery. Our goal with our TTAB fixed fee schedule is to provide more certainty and transparency surrounding certain tasks are predictable in the course of a trademark opposition or cancellation.

How much does a trademark opposition cost?

The cost of a trademark opposition will depend upon how far you are willing to defend your trademark application. For an opposer, the cost will depend upon how far you want to prosecute the case and whether the defendant-applicant will fight back. Please see our fee schedule below for trademark opposition attorney fees.
