How much does it cost?
We have three subscription tiers; the first is £5750 + VAT per year, the second is £7500 + VAT per year and the third is our bespoke subscription, which is priced upon request based upon a review of your portfolio and the action required over the next 12 months. Head to our Infinitely Springbird Subscription page, or send us a message to ask for more information or to obtain a quote.
How do you calculate your subscription fees?
Our calculations centre around the work that we know, or can predict will be required over the upcoming 12-month period; it accounts for searches, filings, renewals, likely prosecution, recordals in process, watching services in place and enforcement activity. We attribute a cost to each activity and create a total fee based on those activities. We are transparent about our calculation process and are happy to share these details with clients as part of the onboarding or renewal process.
What is the catch?
There is no catch! We are extremely open about our pricing and our genuine goal is to be reasonable and to provide simplicity, transparency and certainty for both sides; as much as the subscription provides these benefits to clients, the simplicity eases administration for us too, and the transparency allows us to build much stronger relationships with our clients. In essence, we share the risk with you; there is a chance that we will be required to provide more support to you than we estimated within our proposal, or there is a chance that cases may progress more smoothly than anticipated, resulting in the fee being more than you could have paid at a traditional hourly rate. So, you take an element of risk and so do we; we think this is fairer than the traditional model which makes the client take all the risk and just pay for every minute of support required, with very little predictability or advance warning.
Is there a minimum term?
Yes, 12 months. Considering IP protection is not a short term, one-off project, we find a year means we can be by your side to guide you through the process and beyond (hopefully).
We manage our own portfolio and just need out-sourced support – can you still help?
Yes, our bespoke subscriptions can be tailored to the client needs and so whatever support you require, we can create a subscription for you. Equally, we still support many clients on an ‘ad-hoc’ basis, particularly if there isn't the work or predictability to justify a 12-month subscription, and are happy to do this for you too.
