If your company name is trademarked you can submit your trademark to Google so that no other company can use it within their text ads.

Hi,

Just want to add on to what Leatherlidinser said.

A trademark owner can submit a complaint to Google, if the trademark name is misused by someone else.

Find more information about how to do it in the below link.

Hope this helps,

I was going to post the link but was in the middle of a windows update. Glad you were able to get to it before me.

Hopefully this points you in the right direction.
