A: It would take about six months.

Cost will vary but expect to spend around $1,000 to $1,500

We will need to make some searches to make sure the brand is not taken, and will not conflict.

A: Legal services are not one-price-fits-all situation, but, as noted by my colleague who has already answered, $1000-$1500 in single-application, single international class cases is not unusual. Much depends on your business, your proposed trademark, whether you are interested in protecting your name/words alone or a logo or design, or both. A pre-filing clearance search conducted by a knowledgeable trademark attorney to ensure you are not infringing anyone else's registered mark, or that the mark is not in use in commerce in any other form is advisable.

I would recommend that the full registration process, once an application is filed, can take as long as a year.

Start by contacting an attorney to discuss your particular mark and your particular options in a private consultation.
