    The name of my business is MOW -N- GROW Lawn Service & Landscaping. I have been going by that name for five years.
    Just last month a fellow with the company name of YOU GROW, WE MOW called me and said that I was going to have to change my company name because his customers were calling me.
    any advice
     
  2. Tell him take a hike.

    Uh, tell him if he hadn't noticed, they aren't the same name. He has no complaint.

    Tell him you appreciate the business you've gotten by the mistaken identity.

    He hasn't got a case.

    When did he go in business?

    I do pressure washing and 12 yrs ago I called it DECK DOCTOR. It is a very obvious name. 2yrs ago some guy calls me and tells me he is going to sue me if I don't change my name as his wife saw my sign near thier house. He is called DECK DOCTORS. I politely told him to go right head and was as nice as I could be to him. I invited him and his wife over to my house to talk business as i felt there was more than enough work to go around. I think it flipped him out and I told him that if he could show me his copywrite on the name I would be glad to change. Never heard fom that jacka$$ again. It was a nice try to protect his business it sounds like your guy is trying to intimidate you too.
