In the patent business, rush jobs are inevitable. While the average turnaround time is about a week, it is entirely possible that any given project may be completed in one or two days with no additional fees. Expedition fees are not meant to be penalties for rush jobs. We relish the opportunity to serve you and will work diligently through the night if need be, in order to finish your project on time. The only thing I ask is that to be compensated fairly for this extended effort. Much the same as if I were on your payroll, you would want to pay me time and a half for working after hours. While most projects can me managed within normal business hours with no additional fees, if your project consists of many complex sheets that are due tomorrow, you may incur an expedition fee. I will let you know if expedition fees apply before starting the project. Surprises are best kept for birthdays.
