I'm planning to open a barber shop, but there's already someone using a name similar to the one I wanted. Will I be able to use it, or is it too close.
Used Name Example: Smooth Cuts of FakeCityName LLC
My Name Example: Smooth Cuts LLC
The used name is from a small salon and I'd be opening a barber shop. My location would be about 30 miles away in the same state. Would I be infringing on that business's name?
If it made a difference, I am open to changing my proposed name to:
My Name Example2: Smooth Cutz LLC
My Name Example3: MyCityName Smooth Cuts LLC
I appreciate all the help.
