Registering a business name is easy, but once it’s done, it needs to be protected. This means filing for trademark protection at the state and federal level, if appropriate.

LegaLees’ Attorney Lee R. Phillips has written a new article called, “Registering a Business Name.” In the article, Mr. Phillips reviews the steps for registering a business name. He begins with how to call the state and reserve the name and ends with the importance of trademarking the business name. While registering a business name is important, protecting that name is also important and taking care of that name is up the the business owner.
As Attorney Phillips observes, “It is important to understand that in creating an LLC, the businessman can call and check his name choice and then reserve the name until he files documentation. Mr. Phillips continues, “Registering a business name is easy, but once it’s done, it needs to be protected. This means filing for trademark protection at the state and federal level, if appropriate. If someone is only planning to do business in one state, this step may not be necessary.”
The article gives links to help in trademarking a name. And finally, it also touches on the domain name selection, and the importance of cyberspace “real estate.”
Mr. Phillips serves as a counselor to the Supreme Court of the United States. He is the author of 11 books, including his latest book Protecting Your Financial Future. He has written hundreds of articles for professional people assisting them in finding various strategies using the law to protect their property, save taxes and make additional money. Lee enjoys helping others to apply the law and reach new financial heights.
