One Name, 50 Sets of Regulations

Name ServicesGetting or reserving the right name for your company can be complicated, even after you’ve done brand and trademark homework. Every state has different rules for availability and many have word-specific restrictions. 

Don’t let your business get delayed due to rejection when your name is too similar to another or requires special consents. We understand the different rules and how to resolve problems, in every state.

More Research, Less Surprises

Our team’s proactive approach avoids unforeseen issues. We’ll research the availability of the name for every filing or on request. You’ll get complete details advising where extra steps are required, before we deliver your filings. When we do expect issues, we know who to talk to and how to resolve them.
