Our quotation for handling trademark matters in India

Before filing an application for Trade Mark, we suggest a search of the Trade Mark database to confirm that the name is available.

A search for up to FIVE names, given together, would be ₹500. Once the name is available, the application is to be filed.

The attorney fee to handle and file EACH mark in EACH class would be ₹2000.

The Official filing fee for trademark registration in India for EACH mark in EACH class is ₹4500 for an Individual/Small Firm OR ₹9000 for a Large Firm.

Further prosecution shall be charges as per the table presented above. For example filing a response to an objection will cost you ₹2000 while attending each hearing set up with the examiner would cost you ₹3000.

Alternatively, we offer you an option of paying a total of ₹9000 as professional fee for prosecuting the case up to registration. In this option we commit ourselves to prosecute the application at the Trademark office till registration for a fix one time fee of ₹9000 and thereby protect you from making any unforeseen payment (For a case which does not face a third party opposition).

Thus the two options are:
1. Attorney fee for filing ₹2000 + Actual Trademark Office fee + Action based fee for prosecuting the application till grant/final disposal of the case.
2. ONE time FLAT Attorney fee of ₹9000 + Actual Trademark Office fee  + NO further fee for prosecuting the case till grant/final disposal of the case (Recommended).

We would need the following:
1. Name + address of the applicant.
2. The list of goods and services to be filed.
3. The mark in PDF/JPG format.
4. The date of the earliest use of the mark and the place where this usage started along with a copy of any document which can be used as evidence of such usage.
5. The copies of registration certificate/pending extract from earliest filed other countries. This will help to establish the date of earliest usage.
