Receiving a Notice of Opposition itself is not subject to a fee; however, if your trademark gets opposed, you will have to prepare to cover additional representation fees. The final cost will depend on your representative's rate as well as the complexity and length of the proceedings.

Sometimes, the two parties may reach an amicable solution before moving to the proceedings, which is definitely less time and resources consuming; however, don't forget to consider your attorney's fee for the negotation and preparing and checking documents.

If you decide to withdraw your application instead, bear in mind that this is usually subject to an additional government fee (depending on the jurisdiction) and/or reimbursement costs of the winning party.
