DBA / Business Names

File a DBA quickly and easily

DBA is an abbreviation for "doing business as." If you're a sole proprietorship, you need a DBA to register your business name. Corporations and LLCs need a DBA if they use a different name than what's filed with the state.

With a LegalZoom DBA you can:

  • Legally conduct business and gain valuable rights
  • Open a bank account under the business name

Types of Business Structures

Limited Liability Compancy (LLC)

An LLC is a business entity created under state law that can shield you from personal liability. LLCs are becoming the most popular way to start a business due to their ease and flexibility.

Includes:

  • A personalized operating agreement
  • Provisions to safeguard your personal assets

Corporation (S Corp, C Corp)

A corporation protects your personal assets and is preferred for its ability to attract outside investors.

Includes:

  • Filed documents with the state forming your corporation
  • Personalized bylaws and resolutions defining who owns and manages the company
  • Optional assistance with IRS filings including application for Federal Tax ID and S corp election

Sole Proprietorship

A sole proprietorship is the simplest form of business. Although not considered a separate legal entity, by default, once you start operating a small business (i.e. selling goods or services) you become a sole proprietorship. In a sole proprietorship, there is no separation between the business and individual owner.


Trademark Registration

You've put a lot of time and effort into creating your business. Whether you're just starting out or you're already established, a registered trademark will help expand the protection of your brand nationwide.

Includes:

  • Federal direct-hit search of the federal database
  • Your application reviewed for completeness and filed with the USPTO
  • 30 days to speak with an attorney to help you through the process*

Patents

Provisional Application

Filing a Provisional Application for Patent is one of the fastest, easiest ways to start protecting your invention. You'll receive an immediate priority filing date from the US Patent and Trademark Office and enjoy the immediate right to label your invention "patent pending."

Utility Patent

If you have a great idea, don't wait for someone else to claim it first. LegalZoom has worked with experienced patent attorneys to offer a new, simpler way to file a non-provisional patent application for your invention at a great price.

Design Patent
