What happens next?
Once the form is submitted we'll check to see if everything is in order and then get back to you soon if we need to clarify anything.
Then we send the documents to our partner law firm in China to review and provide an estimate for the trademark pre-clearance search and application registration fees.
We'll get back to you within 2-3 working days in most cases. If you're happy to proceed we send you an invoice for the pre-clearance search fees which you can pay online using our secure payment gateway.
The pre-clearance search fees are non refundable as it involves significant manual effort by our partner firm to check if your logo has already been trademark registered at the time of the search.
The search will be completed within 5-7 working days and we will get back to you soon after. If there are no issues you'll get an invoice for the trademark application registration fees.
After that you'll hear from from us in few months once the China Trademark Office completes the examination and informs our partner if the trademark registration will be granted or not.
