If your company, however, has not taken the steps to insure that its name and any other trademarks are available for use, it may be forced to stop using a mark or worse yet, change its name. This could be devastating to business, especially after much time and equity has been put into building a brand.

Many small businesses overlook these important steps in creating and securing their brand.
