Hi Poppy

Unfortunately, I have heard of cases where someone has had a business name for many years and along comes a big company with a very similar name to yours and then their solicitors order you to de register your name as it’s too close to theirs. And good luck to you trying to fight it unless you have as much money as them to fight it in court. Your best bet is if it concerns you, register a trademark and cover all your bases especially if you are investing quite a bit of money into your venture.

Hope this helps.
