I’m trying to incorporate as a private limited by shares company, but I’ve got a quick question before I do. I’m opening a sweets company here in Manchester, and was hoping to use the name of an old favourite that was here in the city centre for generations. It’s been closed for a decade or so, and at the approval of its old owner, I was hoping to use the same name - give it a modern facelift of sorts. Does anybody know whether a new company can use the name of an old company in such a way?
