WIZ-UK Fees Explained

Our trade mark application process is conducted in two phases -

Brand Protection Strategy

Before we can file your trade mark application, it is vital that we undergo research of your brand and business to devise your comprehensive brand protection strategy. Without completing the required due diligence before filing a trade mark application, you leave yourself vulnerable to objections from the UKIPO and unexpected challenges to your trade mark application (e.g. a letter before action or an official opposition against your application).

In the Brand Protection Strategy, we analyse your brand and provide formal legal advice relating to your prospective trade mark application. This will include a list of classes relevant to your brand (with a snapshot of goods/services), a breakdown of your branding elements, registrability advice, high risk searching advice, and costs related to drafting the specification, alongside preparing and filing the application.

We provide the Brand Protection Strategy at a cost of £75+VAT for one trade mark application and £25+VAT for each additional application.

Specification & Filing

Once you have received and digested your Brand Protection Strategy, we are ready to begin drafting your specification. Our experts will prepare a comprehensive and detailed list of goods and services that you should include in your application to have the best protection possible. We always aim to provide you with the broadest and strongest protection so that no other businesses can copy your name, take advantage of your reputation, or tarnish your brand. 

Once you have approved your specification, we can then prepare and file your trade mark application at the UKIPO.

Our professional fees for preparing a specification and filing a UK basic application start at £250+VAT for one trade mark application in one class. We charge £50+VAT for each additional class thereafter. Further, there is a £50+VAT administration fee for filing the application and dealing with the basic formalities and non-contentious deadline management. You will also need to pay the government's filing fees which are £170 for the first class and £50 for each additional class. 

What's Included

Trade Mark protection can be a complex process where you can encounter technical legal difficulties. We have tried to explain the filing process in simple terms, but we understand that you may have more questions about what is involved. If so, please book a free 15 minute consultation with one of our Trade Mark Attorneys.

UK Search

Our strategy team will conduct a brief and cursory search for identical and very obvious highly similar marks that might conflict with your application in the Classes that you need to cover. This will allow you to see how unique your trade mark is. It will also give you an indication as to whether there are any high-risk obstacles that could stand in the way of your application.

You are always welcome to speak to one of our Trade Mark Experts about the results.

*This is not a substitute for a full clearance search.

Registrability Advice

According to UK and European Trade Mark law, trade marks cannot be registered if they are non-distinctive, describe characteristics of your goods and services, or contain common and generic terms which are used in your trade and industry.

We will advise you on whether your trade mark is actually registrable and recommend a protection strategy which will guarantee that the application is accepted by the examiner at the UK Intellectual Property Office.

Drafting Specification of Goods and Services

When you protect a trade mark, it must cover specific goods and services. Our Strategy Team will prepare a comprehensive and detailed list of goods and services that you should include in your application to have the best protection possible.

We always aim to provide you with the broadest and strongest protection so that no other businesses can copy your name, take advantage of your reputation, or tarnish your brand.

 

Preparing Application

Once we have all of your information, answered your questions, you have agreed with our strategy and Classes to cover, and we have drafted your specification, we can then prepare the application for your approval and make any necessary changes.

Filing Application

Once you confirm that you are happy with everything we will simply submit your trade mark application to the UK Intellectual Property Office.

Your journey to trade mark protection will begin!

 

Reporting All Stages

For UK applications, we will report all stages of the application process to you, which include filing the application, examination reports that require your instructions, publication of the application and the opposition period, the priority period, registration and renewal deadlines.

If there are any challenges made by third parties, we will also bring these to your attention.

 

Trade Mark Monitoring (Optional)

We will monitor your trade mark in the UK using the latest trade mark watching AI technology. This means that we will notify you if there are any identical or similar marks filed by others that might conflict with your trade mark.

If you have international plans for the business just let us know, and we will monitor your mark globally.
