Q: Do I owe my sign on bonus back to my company if I give my notice prior to one year but am still employed by them after?

Actual wording" in the event you voluntarily terminate your employment within twelve (12) months of your start date, you agree to repay the signing bonus in full upon your last day of employment. Does that mean when I give notice? or when I leave? At the end of my two weeks would be after my 1 year.

The answer to your question involves a bit more than name comparison. At least trade channels, zone of natural expansion, and use of the senior mark should also be considered. If you are starting a business, it is a good idea to engage an IP attorney to complete a clearance search for the name and... Read more »

Q: Why is a law firm able to appropriate a trademarked name, “Better Call Saul,” with “Better Phone Stone” slogan?

It’s a question for my business law paper. The firm’s ripped off slogan is service marked; even though the entities are non-competing, they are making commercial profits from it nonetheless from another’s trademarked name. Why is this legal?

I'd recommend calling the NH DMV and just asking them. There are likely administrative regulations which lay out the rules for that process.
