Q: How much the cost ?
Peter N. Munsing
Peter N. Munsing answered on Mar 6, 2021

You haven't asked a question. If you mean how much does it cost for a trade mark registration, technically you may do it yourself IF you can do all the research necessary. Why not just survey some firms? You can also try services like Legal Zoom.

The application fee for trademark registration with the USPTO is $250-$350 per trademark, per class. Attorney fees vary but it is recommended that you work with an attorney. Trademark registration in one country doesn't provide registration in another country.

A trademark attorney can help break this down for you. Most of them over charge their clients and don’t really give a s*** about your business beyond the trademark filing.

You should make a consultation with an attorney to review this.

If you have a registration then that is one thing. If it is just an application still to be decided, then that calls for a different strategy.

Best luck.

Generally dismissed charges aren't going to show on any criminal history or background report. Exceptions to this may be very high level security clearances. Even then, they aren't generally looking for things like renewing your registration a little bit late.
