TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF ENGAGEMENT

I have read and accept the terms and conditions.

AGREED TO AND ACCEPTED BY:

Signature:

  1. PARTIES & EFFECTIVE DATE. This Agreement is made between Boyd, Cooper & Associates, LLC (the “Firm") and You ("Client") (collectively referred to as the “Parties” or individually as a “Party”) and is effective as of date signed by Client.

  2. SCOPE OF SERVICES. Client engages Firm to respond to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) Office Action outlined in the application serial number and provided herein (“Legal Services”). Firm will provide those legal services reasonably required to represent Client, keep Client informed of progress and developments, and promptly respond to Client's inquiries and communications. Firm will only represent Client on the aforementioned matter; an additional retainer or fee will be required for any other legal services related to this case such as responses to office actions, appeals, monitoring, maintenance, renewals, etc. Services for any matter not described herein will require a separate written agreement.

  3.  CLIENT’S RESPONSIBILITIES. Client will cooperate with Firm, make themselves available as requested, provide necessary declarations, promptly pay all fees and costs, and keep Firm informed of Client's whereabouts and current street address, telephone number(s), and e-mail address at all times. 

  4. FEE. This above-referenced service is provided at a flat fee of $350 for response to one ground for refusal. Each additional ground will be billed an additional $50.

  5. COSTS AND EXPENSES. Since Client application is already in queue at the USPTO, typically there are no filing or administrative fees associated with responding to the Office Action. However, in the unlikely event that a fee shall apply (e.g. requests to divide applications, petitions to revive applications, etc.), the Firm will contact you with further details regarding any such fees. If additional fees are assessed by the USPTO and Client decides to abandon efforts to register, all fees paid to Firm for Legal Services will be REFUNDED.

  6. DISCLAIMER OF GUARANTEE AND ESTIMATES. Nothing in this Agreement and nothing in Attorney’s statements to Client will be construed as a promise or guarantee about the outcome of the matter. Attorney makes no such promises or guarantees. Attorney’s comments about the outcome of the matter are expressions of opinion only. CLIENT UNDERSTANDS THAT FIRM CANNOT GUARANTEE THE RESULTS OF A SUCCESSFUL REGISTRATION.

  7. CONFIDENTIALITY: Any writings, notes, memoranda, reports of conversations, research and confidential materials prepared on Client’s behalf will be maintained in strict confidence and under the provisions of the attorney-client privilege.

  8. TERMINATION: Client may terminate this Agreement at any time upon reasonable notice to Firm. In addition, Firm also retains the right to terminate this Agreement. In the event that Firm’s representation is terminated, Client agrees to pay all bills thereafter rendered covering expenses incurred prior to the termination. 

  9. ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement contains the entire agreement of the Parties. No other agreements, statements, or promises made on or before the effective date of this Agreement will be binding on the Parties.

  10. SEVERABILITY. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction, in whole or in part, to be unenforceable for any reason, the remainder of that provision and of the entire Agreement will be severable and remain in effect.

  11. FORM OF SIGNATURES. This agreement may be executed by the parties in electronic counterparts.

 

ATTORNEY ADVERTISING. PRIOR RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE SIMILAR OUTCOME.
