Does Wolfe Legal Services Litigate Trademark Infringement or Represent Me in Opposition Proceedings?
No. This firm focuses on guiding clients through the process of applying for and maintaining their trademarks with the USPTO. I do one thing and do it well, so I can keep my prices transparent and affordable. For those reasons, Wolfe Legal Services does not practice litigation and will not institute or represent you in response to Opposition Proceedings from third parties.
All filing fees, even those not specifically mentioned above, are the responsibility of the client and are paid for prior to services rendered by Wolfe Legal Services. All filing fees refunded in full if no application is filed.
* “IN USE” filing fee consists of the government discounted TEAS Standard electronic filing fee of $350. If the stricter "TEAS Plus" system can be used for your application, Wolfe Legal Services will use this system. The TEAS Plus system streamlines the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) review process and has a lower filing fee of $250, but requires additional labor to process. If we are able to use the TEAS Plus system for your application, you will still be charged $350, of which $250 will be allocated to the USPTO fee and $100 to a processing fee. The USPTO may later charge a $100 fee should you choose not to communicate with them electronically or otherwise meet the requirements of the discounted TEAS Standard or TEAS Plus filing fees, and the $100 processing fee will not be refunded to you or applied to such fees in the event that the USPTO charges you this fee later. INTENT TO USE APPLICATIONS REQUIRE A $450 FILING FEE.
** A “knockout search” consists of a full review of the USPTO Trademark Electronic Search System (TESS) for identical and very similar marks registered or in the application phase in the same classification of goods and/or services. A simple knockout search does not search for other common law/unregistered and possibly conflicting uses or potential international conflicts.
*** An application is deemed “refused” for these purposes once it receives a final refusal. Fees waived for a knockout search and application for second application. Only Wolfe Legal Service’s fees are waived. Client is responsible for paying filing fees for the second application, prior to Wolfe Legal Services applying for the second application. Mark is deemed “recommended” if Wolfe Legal Services states in writing that Wolfe Legal Services believes that there is a substantially significant chance that the trademark will register on the Principal Register after a comprehensive search.
**** For Likelihood of Confusion responses, the fee shall be $800 for a rejection based on likelihood of confusion with one (1) mark. For each additional mark that forms the basis the Office Action refusal for likelihood of confusion, an additional $400 fee per additional mark shall be charged.
