Protect Your Most Important Asset

If your company uses an assumed name, trade name, fictitious name or d/b/a, it’s important to ensure that name is compliant with state and local laws. Registration and timely renewal establishes the use of your name. In many states, this prevents other entities from registering the same or similar name.

The requirements and renewal periods vary tremendously from state to state and can make managing these names confusing and difficult. That’s why we’re here to help.

Regularly monitoring changes to state and local requirements, we know what and when to file. Our team of specialists provides both personalized service and a streamlined digital process to gather and verify required information.

With our assumed name compliance services, you can ensure these names stay active in every jurisdiction – without the risk of missing something if you handle it yourself.
