I am currently in employment but would like to set up my own small design company - possibly not until later this year as my wife and I need to work through plans in terms of money in more detail.
I have spent a long time working on a name that fits what I am going to do, and cannot find anyone else with this name in the area of design / creative services. Is there a way that I can register this so that no one else can use this name to set up a
design agency, even though I will not be trading? I don't want to start working up a website and stationary etc if someone else sets up a design agency with the same name in the meantime.
Finally, whilst I have searched to see if anyone else is using this name and cannot find anyone, can you tell me if there is a definitive way of fining this out? Is this something you're able to do? The name would be 'come with us.'
