How LLCs and Trademarks Differ – And Why Your Business Likely Needs Both


At first glance, LLCs and Trademarks might seem to have similarities, but in reality they are mutually exclusive of each other. Understanding the vast differences between LLCs and Trademarks is necessary in order to best protect your small business. Join me as I break down the differences and lay out why your business likely needs both. 

In this episode, we’ll cover: 

  • The basics of LLCs and Trademarks 

  • How the protections of LLCs and Trademarks differ 

  • Why local brick and mortar businesses may not need to be concerned about federal trademark protection 

  • Why online businesses likely need both an LLC and Trademarks
