UP Cost Calculator

The graph below shows the evolution of the filing and maintenance costs during a patent's lifetime, as well as the difference in cost between the two filing strategies. This takes into account your patent characteristics, the jurisdictions you want to cover and also the pruning provisions. The geographical scope of the UP may change in the future, so the estimator shows potential savings only in currently ratified states. You can compare cumulative costs and total savings (in %).

The estimated fees are based on a number of assumptions, please note that the costs are one factor among many others for deciding on whether to obtain a UP. The information provided here should not be relied upon without first seeking professional advice. HOFFMANN EITLE will advise you comprehensively in order to find the best individual solution for you. Please consult your HE attorney of trust or ask your questions to upc@hoffmanneitle.com.
