I have a requirement where in i have validate a company name which accepts only:
a space between each word

The name shall always start with a alphabet and if there are multiple words only 1 space shall be allowed.
last letter of the name can also be apostrophe.

Can someone guide me how to write such regex.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
