California Law Corp | Can “Group” be in the Name?

January 3, 2023

Are you a California attorney forming a California law corporation and want to know if you can include the word “group” as part of the corporation name?

California Law Corporations Can use “Group” in their Name if Certain Requirements are Met

In order to adhere to California Rule 1-400 of the Rules of Professional Conduct, it is necessary to provide a reason for the use of the term “Group” in your law corporation’s name.

One way to do this is by identifying at least one other employee of the corporation, who could be any type of professional, not necessarily an attorney.

This will demonstrate that the use of the term “Group” is appropriate and meets the requirements of the rule.
