How much does a Patent cost & Trademark cost? 

September 19, 2015


Costs can fluctuate with the type of patent: provisional, non-provisional, design, continuation-in-part, divisional, or continuation application.  It is hard to place a particular amount to the work.  In general terms to serve as a guide, it is not uncommon for patent attorneys to charge hourly rates from $200-$400 / hour.  If you call around, you will find that applications range from $1,000-$20,000 depending on the firm selected, the type of application, and the subject matter to be patented.  This range in fees only emphasizes the need for the inventor to do their homework and consider the 5 tips above regarding "How do I choose a patent attorney?"


Some of the same factors noted above affect the cost of filing a trademark application.  When doing a trademark application it is highly recommended to perform a search (you and/or your attorney).  There is then the cost of the attorney preparing the application documents and the filing fee at the USPTO.  Cost can vary depending on the type of service you select to do the work and what exactly you want.  Estimated price ranges may be from $500-$2,500 (not including filing fees).  Filing fees are based on the number of classes of goods or services you select to have your mark examined in.  When shopping around, focus on the attorney costs and searching costs as the filing fees are inevitable and equal to all parties typically.
