ASSUMED NAMES, TRADE NAMES AND FICTITIOUS NAMES: WHY IS ALL THIS SO COMPLICATED?

Webinar on Assumed Names, Trade Names and Fictitious Names

Doing business under another name, whether forced fictitious or voluntarily assumed, comes with a great many rules, requirements, and renewal dates to track and manage.

Managing all of this correctly can greatly impact a company’s ability to use the name and, in some states, have that name protected. It’s important to be knowledgeable and aware of all the nuances – especially in the context of company restructuring.

Hosted by Pia Angelikis and Teri Mayor of COGENCY GLOBAL, this webinar recording explores challenges regarding assumed name registration and compliance, offering critical insight into the following topics:

  • The importance of registering all names used by a registered entity.
  • The complexities of elective assumed name registration and maintenance.
  • How entity registration and alternate name registration requirements impact each other.
  • The role of entity name registration in reorganizations, acquisitions and/or mergers.
