An office action is communication from the USPTO that presents a barrier to registering a mark and requires a time-sensitive response.
Procedural office actions require further clarification or information with the examiner but do not require a legal argument.
Substantive office actions require a legal argument. VeriTrademark® fees start at $900 for responses to substantive office actions. These are never included as part of our flat fee registration process but our trademark analysis will often alert you to the possibility of such an issue.
