In CT if I have a remodeling company that is a c corp. that operates as a dba, can I just name the dba on a contract or do I have to name the c corp. & the dba?

Good afternoon. You want any contracts you enter into to be entered into as follows: [Legal name of Corporation] d/b/a [Assumed Name of Corporation].

So is just the dba name illegal &/or not binding?

Thanks so much for following up. The d/b/a is to give the general public "deemed notice" of the actual name of the entity with which it is dealing and that the entity is in fact a limited liability entity. But, when you enter into a formal contract, you must use the formal name of the party entering into the contract to insure that it be recognized as a legally binding contractual agreement.
