Our company recently sold, the new company owns all the servers but we keep the internet domain name. (they will rebuild the existing servers)

It is my task now to build a new domain.  I will need to create a trust because I have a couple hundred people to move over.

The old domain was company.com which is also my internet name  actually its corp.company.com, location1.company.com, location2.company.com etc.

Can I create a new forest called new.company.com and then create a trust? I thought about creating company.local but I still think company.com is the best way to go.

usually naming conventions are .local for internal systems, which can be still mapped publicly as .com. But the choice is yours. Really depends if you have DMZ internally housed or not..

Yes, absolutely. Provided the names don't conflict with the existing forest (which would prevent you forming a trust).

so you are saying if I have location.company.com on the old domain.  I can then create a new forest called new.company.com?

Sure, there's no conflict in naming there. Just make sure the NetBIOS naming is different as well.
