What: Office Action Insurance provides clients with a way to insure against the possible cost of answering an Office Action.
Why: Office Actions come in different shapes and sizes. Invariably, they require additional work (and therefore fees) to answer. Some Office Actions may take less than 30 minutes, but others can take 10 hours or more to respond to.
Who: Office Action insurance is for anyone filing a trademark with the USPTO. There is always a chance that your trademark will receive an office action. The more detailed the search report you purchase the better idea you’ll often have as to whether your trademark application is likely to receive an Office Action.
When: Office Action insurance is available for purchase up until the time an application is filed.
But…what if the response is not successful? We have been responding to Office Actions for a long time, using state of the art software along with our legal training, and we have had considerable success when responding to Office Actions. However, no matter how good our arguments are, we cannot guarantee a favorable outcome. The good news is that your financial risk is much lower with your purchase of the Office Action insurance.
