Dear Sir or Madame: Thank you again for asking us to provide legal representation to advise you in regard to your patent matter. This letter will confirm the general terms and conditions under which we will provide that representation. The fees we charge for services are based upon a flat fee structure. Flat fees give clients security in knowing the anticipated costs for matters and encourage efficiency in the legal process. For hourly work, we require an advance of the estimated fees that will be incurred on the project. In addition to our fee, you will be charged for out-of-pocket expenses incurred on your behalf and they include such items as governmental fees and patent drawing services. When we anticipate that we will be required to incur substantial costs on your behalf, we require an advance cost deposit. Our normal procedure is for each statement to set out in detail the services which will be performed and the nature of the costs incurred. All patent services will be performed once full deposit has been received. The consultation fee will be applied toward a patent application upon retaining services. In order to begin the Patent Application process, a 50% deposit is required prior to prosecution. The balance is due after client receives their specification. All Office Action responses, Patent Searches, Amendments, Patent Drawings, and any USPTO correspondence will be performed once full payment has been received. Governmental fees are governed under USPTO rules and regulations and are subject to change, any additional governmental and/or legal fees will be added to the cost of prosecution. If our statements are not paid when due, we reserve the right to discontinue providing services until our account has been brought current or terminate services if delinquency persists. Should you need to cancel your patent matter for any reason after 48 hours from when this Representation Agreement has been executed; a cancellation fee equal to 100% of your deposit will result. Legal fees are non-refundable. If you have any questions about the contents of this letter or other terms and conditions of our engagement, please feel free to discuss them with me. Let me again say that we are pleased to have the opportunity to work with you, and we will exert ourselves to ensure a long and mutually enjoyable relationship. Sincerely, TIFFANY C. MILLER, PRES. Inventions International Inc. I agree to the terms as outlined above.
