It should be noted that the number of countries and Classes that you choose in your filing project will impact on the government and official fees payable. The official fees relating to the base application / registration and the initial international application will be payable on filing. The WIPO fees will be payable 6-8 months after filing.

If there are any territories that require protection which are not pat of the International Registration system, we will need to file separate national registrations for these jurisdictions. We can provide separate advice and cost estimates for such national registration projects. We are able to protect trade marks in all countries around the world.

Unlimited Focused International Strategy Advice

We will work with you to find a solution and project that suits your business and budget, and devise a focused filing strategy to ensure that a solid detailed plan is established in order for you to move forward with local and international protection.

4

Unlimited Regional & Global Screening Searches

Our strategy team will conduct as many searches for identical marks that might conflict with your applications in the territories that you wish to cover. This will allow you to see how unique your trade marks are in those places. It will also give you an indication as to whether there are any high-risk obstacles that could stand in the way of your applications, as this will of course affect your decision as to whether you want to make the investment to protect the brand in particular localities.

We will conduct as many Worldwide and Regional Identical Screening Searches in national registries globally for any identical matches of your trade marks and provide you with the statistical data needed to see whether your trade marks have been applied for or protected by a third party in the Classes of interest.

Global searches are essential because your International applications can be objected to by owners of earlier conflicting trade mark applications and registrations in any territory that you decide to cover.

After the breakdown of the statistical information, if you require more in-depth searching, we will include the cost of retrieving the detailed data, reviewing and analysing the results, drafting a report, advising on the marks and categorising the risks.

The above searches are not substitutes for full clearance searches, which will be charged at our standard rate.

Unlimited Territorial & Local Registrability Advice

If requested, we will provide advice relating to the registrability of your trade mark in a particular territory by liaising with one of our local associates in that jurisdiction.

This advice will be confined to an inherent registrability assessment. You also have the option of obtaining a formal opinion where an in-depth analysis is required. A formal in-depth opinion may incur further costs.

6

Unlimited Classes of Goods and Services

There are up to 45 different classes of goods and services that a trade mark can be protected for. Our Worldwide Unlimited Retainer allows you to include as many Classes of the goods and services in your international protection project.

It should be noted that the number of Classes that you choose in your filing project will impact on the government and official fees payable.

7

Unlimited Preliminary Local Advice on Refusals & Objections

Once the WIPO approves your International Registration, the matter will be passed to the local registries of the designated countries for processing with the aim of obtaining protection in those designations.

It is not unusual for local registries to issue notices relating to adherence to formalities, which usually includes requests for editorial amendments to specifications of goods and services. On top of that, it is possible that more serious matters can be raised, such as general eligibility for registration and the presence of earlier conflicting marks in that territory that might block your application.

When reporting any notices from local registries, we always accompany this with a report and advice on moving forward, together with any further fees that might need to be incurred in overcoming any objections.

8

Costs Spread Over 18 Months to 2 Years

The International Retainer allows you to spread the cost over time. The costs are usually dealt with in the following stages.

Stage 1 – filing of base applications

Stage 2 – filing of international Registration at WIPO through the national office of origin

Stage 3 – payment of WIPO fees relating to the designated territories and Classes

It should be noted that further fees may be required if there are local examination queries, registry issues and objections that need to be dealt with, or if there are any third party challenges or oppositions.
