Hi:

If you have a compound name used with another modifier preceding the noun they
modify; i.e, the name of a company:

(Name) and (Name) related project

Should the entire company name be hyphenated, or just the last of the two
names; i.e.,

(Name)-and-(Name)-related project

-or-

(Name) and (Name)-related project

Many thanks for any help on this one. Please respond directly to:

Thanks!
