How do I prevent someone from using my business trade name? Posted on April 14, 2011

I have a business in SC in which I have 50% partner (we've been in business for abut 8 years). My partner decided to go ahead and open another business, exactly as the one we have, in another state, and he is using the same exact name without my authorization. In addition, he is trying to use the same advertising and marketing materials. Can he legally do that?
