How can I make a company who named itself very similarly to mine and directly competes with me to change their name?
1 Answer from Attorneys
A great deal will depend on who used the name first in commerce. In other words, if your business is called X and you used X to advertise your services and promote your business, then you would have first right to the name. If on the other hand you just named your business X and did nothing and someone else came along and named their business X and used the name in commerce, they have the right to it.
Either way , you need to contact a lawyer.
