Trademark Renewals

Olcott International has been offering worldwide Trademark Renewal services since 1961.
We also offer additional services which include associated filings, such as change of name/address, assignments and mergers, POA’s, reclassifications, etc., that normally accompany such renewal work.

Trademark Renewal Fees

Trademark renewal fees must be paid to maintain a trademark registration in force. The amounts payable, as well as the frequency of the payments and documents required, are regulated by the individual countries. If a fee payment is missed, most jurisdictions will allow a six month grace period subject to the payment of additional surcharge fees.

Renewal Process

Approximately six months before each renewal due date, Olcott will provide clients with an individual Renewal Reminder per case due within a specific month. On such Renewal Reminders, the complete case information, the renewal due date and the total costs will be listed. The client is asked to provide instructions within a certain time period. Upon receipt of final instructions for a specific case/renewal month, the client will be provided with a final invoice along with a schedule of payments to be made for all cases for which payment authorization was received.

Clients also have the option of authorizing a permanent payment order (i.e. standing payment order), which means that we make all payments in due time, unless we receive instructions to the contrary. The client will receive renewal registration certificates once available. Such documents can also be downloaded through the client online accounts. However, there are some jurisdictions which issue certificates several years after the date of renewal.

In addition to the standard renewal work we also offer additional services which include associated filings, such as change of name/address, assignments and mergers, reclassifications, etc., that normally accompany such renewal work.
