We offer competitive fees while striving to provide high-quality services. In many cases, we offer clients fixed fees for various matters to help clients keep control of patent-related legal costs.
Our service fees listed below are typical fees for subject matter of ordinary complexity, and do not include government-imposed fees (such as filing fees or extension fees). These fees are not intended as having "one-size-fits-all" applicability, as individual cases do differ in, e.g., complexity, number of embodiments involved, and ultimately the amount of time required for conducting due diligence and rendering a high-quality service. We reserve our right to change our fees without notice and negotiate mutually acceptable fees for matters of unusual complexity.
