We will handle everything for you.
From a procedural point of view, all you will need to do is provide some basic information and filing particulars, together with details of the trademark and a POA form, which needs only to be signed (no notarisation or legalisation required) and returned to us by email.
The entire process can be handled via email, swiftly and efficiently, allowing us to easily represent clients anywhere in Israel and around the world.
If you elect to fast-track your application (see columns to the right), then we will also prepare for you an affidavit explaining why your application requires urgent handling.
We will then file the application and keep you updated as to its progress, hopefully through to its succesful registration!
Costs are comprised of the official fees, paid to the Registrar, and our professional fee.
Israel has a multiclass filing system. Official fees for the first class are NIS 1,630 (c. $475), and NIS 1,224 (c. $355) for each additional class.
If you elect to fast-track the application and apply for expedited examination (see column to the right), then this adds official fees of NIS 765 (c. $225) per class.
Our own fees must be added to the above costs, and will depend on the other filing parameters. Please send us an email and we will be happy to give you a quote.
We are certain you will find our prices very attractive.
When time is of the essence, an application can be examined and approved in as little as 1 to 4 days!
There are two tracks available.
On the regular track, the application is filed and takes its place at the bottom of a large pile of applications that await the Registrar's attention. Currently, ITO is examining applications that were filed around 6 months ago...
On the other hand, if you would like to fast-track your application, we can apply for expedited examination, and if we convince the Registrar that your case requires urgent attention, then could be examined and approved within a matter of days.
The fast-track is more expensive, but carries two major advantages. Firstly, as soon as your mark has been approved, it will take preference over any similar application with a later filing date. Conversely, since Israel does not apply a first-to-file rule, an application waiting in the queue in the regular track will not necessarily take preference over a similar mark, filed later.
Secondly, you will be able to enforce your mark only after the registration process has been completed.
In both tracks, once a mark has been examined and approved, it will be published at the end of the month, for a 3 month opposition period. If no oppositions are filed, a certificate of registration will issue a couple of weeks later.
