Article in Entrance: “Company name”


“I came up with a wonderful name for my catering company and incurred the necessary costs for this. Now there is another entrepreneur who is going to use almost the same one. Is that allowed?” 

#Regulations The law stipulates that someone with the name of a company, the trade name, may not create confusion. The person who used the name first is then the most entitled. For the violation of a trade name, it does not matter whether it happened on purpose or was a coincidence.
