Riverton, UT asked in Trademark for Utah

Q: I have some questions that I have about an LLC that I started that might already be trademarked in a different state

If the LLC is already trademarked does that mean I cant start my LLC? The company that has that name looks like they've been inactive for sometime, or could I patent the name? Or does it not matter since its in a different state?

A: You need to consult with an attorney.

The use of a name in a company name may or may not be indicative of a brand use.

And you would need to do a trademark search and analysis to find out your options.
