Business and company names are not trade marks
Business and company names do NOT provide any automatic proprietary ownership to the use of the name – only registered trade marks can give that kind of protection. In a recent report, the federal government identified thousands of business and company names that are currently infringing registered trade marks. Some of these will almost certainly result in legal action being taken against the business proprietor and/or company director.
We can reduce the risk of infringing business names

We can provide this service either directly to your client, or as a white label service behind your brand. The first trade mark search per client is always free and our application costs to register trade marks are very reasonable.
