    Re: commas before with

    Hi Tazvano

    Example 1
    My name is xxxxxx, with XYZ Company.
    With is a preposition and usually occurs before a noun group. The sentence is one big noun group connecting information which is relevant to the subject. There is no need for a comma, see example:
    My name is Teresa with Chocolates Galore Company.
    It would actually be gramatically correct if it was:
    My name is Teresa from the Chocolates Galore Company OR
    My name is Teresa from Chocolates Galore.
    I am sure there are plenty more examples.

    Example 2
    I'm speaking with xxxxxx, regarding an incident which occurred on ....
    This sentence you are using 'regarding' to connect clauses. Commas can act as pauses in sentences between information. My opinion is that this sentence does not need a comma as the information is relevant to subject. See below:
    I'm speaking with Teresa regarding an incident which occured on Friday.

    Hope this helps
