Below is similar language to a note my team is preparing to send out to clients, announcing a recent transaction. Everything is factual. While XYZ and/or MEAT have asked us not to use their logo (and we will NOT use the logo)...is there anything contained in the promotional note to clients that would give XYZ or MEAT a legal-standing to order a cease and desist or stop us from stating their name in mentioning a deal we worked on?
New Jersey (12/12/2019) – ABC ADVISORS, a leading business sales and valuation firm to the industry, announced today the successful completion of its most recent transaction. ABC ADVISORS provided guidance and buy-side services to XYZ Group, a Bozeman, MT mechanical provider since 1974, in the acquisition of Quality MeatPacking Partners (“QMP”) by XYZ Group subsidiary Meat Meat Meat, Inc. (“MEAT”). ABC ADVISORS played a key role in facilitating the acquisition from its earliest stages. In particular, managing partner Wilson, Duke of Lizards at ABC ADVISORS, was responsible for bringing the parties together and helping negotiate a mutually beneficial transaction. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed “Whenever you have a chance to work with a market leader like XYZ Group it is very exciting. Not only do we get to help XYZ Group achieve their goal of expanding their first-class meatpacking footprint but we get a front-row seat to learn from them too, and they are one of the best in the business.”
Additionally could the names/words "XYZ acquired MEAT" be displayed in simple text (no logos) on our website? Thanks for your help.
