I want to incorporate an LLC in a state. (From what I understand, that happens on a state level, not federal).
If I incorporate in state A, someone else in state A can't create a company with the same name. However, someone in state B can (at least that's how I thought it worked).
So if I incorporate in a state that's not my home state, someone else can start their own company in my home state, but incorporate it there, and then we'd have two companies in a state operating under the same name.
Is that correct? If it is, I'm guessing there's not much I can do about it, besides maybe trademark the company name.
