Q.Will incorporating prevent others from using my company name?

A.No. Incorporating a business will not prevent another business from using your corporate name ("trade Name"). Filing Articles of Incorporation only prevents the Secretary of State from accepting another corporation that has the same, or a deceptively similar, name as one already maintained on their register.

To prevent another company or business from using your corporate name, you will need to file for a trademark. For more information on trademarks click here.
