If I want to register a company name, will it also be a trademark?

The simple answer is no. Your company name is a different entity than a name you choose to trademark. Also, the processes for each are respectively different. The main purpose of a trademark is to protect a certain name from being replicated or imitated. So if this is relevant in your particular situation, then you may want to consider attaining a trademark for your company name rather soon.

One of the best things you can do is hire a lawyer. I suggest this because a lawyer may be able to steer you in the right direction. Also, you want to be certain there are no other steps you want to take to protect the things associated with your business.

Finding a lawyer can be a difficult process and typically legal costs are always a concern. To remedy this problem, we created LawTrades. If you check out our site, you can find lawyers that specialize in registering trademarks and other IP related issues, and screen them based on price, location and verified client reviews. So you can find the best lawyer for you needs, at the lowest price.

Aside from finding a lawyer, you can take a look at the US Patent and Trademark’s website. They provide an online application; Online Filing: Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS). This will at least give you a good understanding of what you want to keep in mind and what questions to ask when consulting a lawyer.

I hope this answer is helpful. Best of luck with your business! If there is anything else I can do to help, please reach out!
