Trepanier MacGillis P.A. represents business owners and corporations in Minnesota. In addition to providing a wide-range of business services, TMB attorneys can help you register your assumed business name (sometimes called a “d/b/a” or “doing business as”) with the Minnesota Secretary of State.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that registering an assumed name or “d/b/a” provides significant trademark or service mark protection for your business name. In fact, an assumed name registration may not provide much in terms of security or brand protection. Instead, consider a trademark or service mark filing with the Minnesota Secretary of State and/or U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. TMB attorneys can help you decide the scope of protection needed for your business name.
Contact TMB now to discuss your options for registering an assumed name or “d/b/a” with the State of Minnesota. Besides assumed name or “d/b/a” registrations, we would be happy to discuss common legal needs of your company, including corporate resolutions, minute books, buy-sell agreements, non-compete agreements, employment agreements, and business contracts.
Please call us now or complete the contact form below to learn how we can help you register your assumed name. Please tell us about the type of business you have, the proposed assumed name, the proposed name holder of the name, and the desired date of registration. We look forward to the possibility of representing you.
