I recently had the pleasure of working with Joel Weston on what initially... seemed like a minor IPO issue, but it evolved into a comprehensive co-existence agreement with another company. I can’t express enough how much I valued Joel’s expertise, depth of knowledge, and meticulous guidance throughout this process. It was more than just legal advice; for me, it was akin to an enlightening crash course in IP law!read more

Helpful Tips

Do I have to identify the designer?
It is possible to waive the name of the designer when filing a European Community Design, but you should be sure that you have the rights to the design


Albright IP endeavour to make the trade mark registration process as simple and stress-free as possible, whilst obtaining the broadest protection possible for your trade mark. We can advise you whilst taking account of your circumstances, and will act for you and provide advice for at each stage of the procedure, as well as outlining likely future costs to allow you to budget effectively.

If you would like a no-obligation quote, please contact us by e-mail or telephone and we can give you up-to-date costs for handling trade mark applications at any stage in the UK, in Europe or in other overseas territories. We offer all-inclusive prices, with no hidden costs. We believe that are our fees are very competitive but are happy to try and price match, if you receive a lower equivalent quotation elsewhere. We also offer to undertake a free search of the UK and Community trade mark registers for IDENTICAL word Marks to your proposed trade mark in 1-3 Classes.


We are committed to providing the best service at an affordable price, and provide clear indications of cost for each stage of the UK and European patenting processes.

The following sections give a general indication of when and why costs are incurred on UK and European patent applications.

Is preparing and filing a registered trade mark application expensive?

We offer competitive fixed fee deals for preparing UK and European trade mark applications, and then filing at the UK IPO or EUIPO respectively.

We also offer very competitive rates for handling overseas trade mark applications, via our network of experienced and cost-effective foreign associates. This applies to both Madrid Protocol (‘international’) trade mark applications and to national trade mark filings in individual countries.

For further details, please contact us for a brief discussion.

Are there any official fees to pay?

Official fees are due on all trade mark applications but the level of fees can vary between different jurisdictions. For example, whilst the EUIPO official fees are higher than the UK IPO official fees, you are able to prosecute a single trade mark application and, on registration, receive a registered European Union trade mark covering Europe. As a result, if you need trade mark protection in a number of European countries, there can be significant savings by applying for a registered European (Community) trade mark rather than for individual national registered trade marks.

Are there any other costs associated with registered trade mark applications?

Separately to the official fees, there are foreign attorney fees and our service fee in handling trade mark applications. Generally speaking, most of the cost is involved in the filing stage, although some countries also have official fees due on registration of a trade mark.

If formal objections arise against a trade mark application, there may also be costs involved in overcoming the objections.
