Need to Change LLC Name!?!?!?!!?

    I'm new to this forum. I recently formed an LLC in VA. I found that there is another LLC with the same name in MD (formed before mine). We do similar services, although not quite the same. I do tech writing/editing, the other company does freelance copywriting.


    I am interested in applying for federal contracts though, so I don't want ANY issues. I would like to apply for a DUNS, CAGE #, etc.


    I should also note that the only thing I've done is file the article of org. with the state and worked on a website. I haven't registered an EIN, created bank accounts, or anything else.


    What is the best option for me to resolve this? Should I:


    a)dissolve this LLC and file for a separate one with a new name

    b)try to amend the name of this LLC (since I haven't done anything with it yet)

    c)use a separate DBA name (i read about this but am uncertain as to how that works exactly in this case and the legal ramifications later).


    I appreciate any feedback.

    Hey guys,


    we are Fabian and Ivan from Hamburg, Germany and try to realize our lifetime dream through Kickstarter (Crowd funding).

    In fact we dislike self-promotion in terms of spam but in our current position there is no other possibility and otherwise we can bury our lifetime dream.

    Our plan is to found a new fashion brand. Fashion means to us shoes, fragrances for him and her and headphones. Our marketing-concept is based on promotion through celebrities. In the past it was possible to us to get a good connection to popular people. There onto we want to open a store in Los Angeles, Hollywood to emphasize the elegance and exclusivity.

    For our big plan we need 3.5Mio € to be competitive on the international market. In this cause we published our intentions on Kickstarter to get our project financed through crowd funding.

    It would be awesome if you support us. Every euro brings us further and of course we have little considerations for you helping us.

    We got after 12 hours almost 12.000€.

    We thank you with all our heart and you can have a look at the following link:


    Best regards,

    Fabian and Ivan
