We do not charge an additional fee for taking over representation when renewing German trademarks.

There are two ways of taking over representation:

It is the policy of our office to renew German trademarks only which we represent and not to advance office fees for new clients.

No responsibility is accepted for the correctness of the official fees. The attorney's fees indicated on this page are minimum charges of the law firm Dr.-Ing. Hellmich which may be raised in urgent cases.
