As expanding trademark protection has become a priority in our time for all brand owners with an eye on cutting cost to minimum, we, at Abu-Ghazaleh Intellectual Property (AGIP), have been examining this issue over the last couple of years, and after careful analysis and study, AGIP would like to announce that clients can now save hundreds of dollars when filing their trademark applications simultaneously through AGIP in China, India and Russia for as little as U.S $ 1,495. 
 
As AGIP has been involved in serving clients from all over the world, and in recognition and full understanding to our clients’ needs, we are excited to offer our clients a tremendous chance to extend their trademark protection to almost half of the worldwide population in one single click. 
 
China, India and Russia represent almost half of the globe population, and have been among the wealthiest regions of the world. In fact, they were ranked among the top ten largest economies in the world by nominal Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The combined GDP of the three countries surpasses $30 trillion, with combined population of 3 billion.
