USPTO Trademark Filing Fees In Denver, CO

The USPTO charges a standard trademark processing fee of $350 per class of goods and services at the time of filing. The majority of trademark filings are filed under one class. Some filings require additional classes to incorporate the breadth of the goods and services for which the mark being filed. As an example of a typical filing, a trademark for a brand of coffee could be filed under class 30, which is the class for staple foods such as:

Coffee, tea, cocoa, sugar, rice, tapioca, sago, artificial coffee; flour and preparations made from cereals, bread, pastry and confectionery, ices; honey, treacle; yeast, baking-powder; salt, mustard; vinegar, sauces (condiments); spices; ice.

In some cases, it is determined based on goods and services to be used with the mark that the filing can be made through a less expensive but more restrictive USPTO filing system called TEAS Plus ($250 per class).

The attorneys at Thomas P. Howard, LLC, are familiar with these different options and will review the same with you based on your specific facts. In the event that you are not using your desired trademark or service mark in commerce at the time of the filing, you will need to file a “Statement of Use” showing use in commerce of the mark within six months of the USPTO’s acceptance of the mark. When the mark begins to be used in commerce, Thomas P. Howard, LLC, will prepare and file a Statement of Use on your behalf for a flat fee of $125. The PTO charges a filing fee of $100 for the Statement of Use filing. If evidence of commercial use does not become available in that initial six-month timeframe, up to five extensions of time for filing of the Statement of Use, each of six months in length, can be obtained from the USPTO with proper grounds.
