Did you miss our CLE webinar, Assumed Names, Trade Names and Fictitious Names: Why is All of This so Complicated? If so, you can now watch it On Demand for free. We delved into the complexities surrounding the use and registration of assumed names in business operations. Our presenters explored various national and local name protection options to safeguard these valuable assets, emphasized the necessity of registration for elective assumed names, discussed the legal prerequisites and potential penalties for failing to adhere to these requirements and even examined significant case decisions.
We also covered the assumed name registration process, detailing name requirements, filing locations, post-registration duties and the different variations of registrations while touching upon how assumed names influence due diligence. There was also a timely discussion on the CTA assumed name reporting requirements and guidance on how to determine location and existence of assumed name registrations.
