Service Fees

NO HIDDEN FEES

We understand that overseas clients often worry that filing a patent application in Japan means uncertainty about what everything will cost.

Unlike several other IP law firms in Japan, Allegro IP reveals the schedule of services as below, and will NOT charge you any hidden fees or additional service charges without your authorization. We absorb unnecessary expenses for clients to the greatest possible extent, for example, those related to transfer proceedings. 

We can do this because we have tried to reduce waste to keep the costs to be charged to our clients to a minimum, and we believe that our service fees are competitive among IP law firms in Japan.
