What others do
Many other professional firms will charge you a fixed fee for certain actions, particularly for filing a trade mark application and perhaps for reporting when that application is accepted and then sending you the certificate of registration. Other work in overcoming objections is typically charged at hourly rates. The fixed fee components typically do not have any direct relationship to the actual cost or value for providing that service. Hourly rates are commonly used where firms want to avoid taking the risk of estimating the total cost of a trade mark application, but they tend to reward inefficiencies and lack accountability.
