Hello people,
I run a small business as a sole trader but want to protect my business name/brand. The cost of becoming a limited company is so high and the paperwork is also doubled and a maze of frightening stuff. I can just about cope with the paperwork and cost that I deal with as a sole trader.

Trademarking my logo and business name protects it which I feel is my best bet but I want to know if I can do this without being a limited company.

Also if anyone knows of a solicitor that can advise on trademark matters without taking me to the cleaners, it would be so, so sooo, helpful.

Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thanking you in advance for now.:)
