My current rate is $250 per hour.
My retainer depends on the complexity and type of work to be performed. For each trademark,
a retainer in the amount of $475 will be due which includes the filing fee charged by the U.S. Trademark Office for filing
the trademark application in one class. For the preparation and drafting of each patent application, a retainer in the
amount of $2500 will be due for a non-complex invention, and will increase depending on the complexity of your invention.
The retainer may or may not cover all the legal expenses for your case, and the client will be billed upon the completion,
or if it is a long project, once during each month until the project is completed.
There is opportunity for exploring whether a flat rate would be applicable to your situation.
This is usually reserved for work that is in bulk, consistent and repetitive (with minor variations in what is being
prepared, filed or prosecuted). Please call me to discuss your particular situation.
