If you find a too similar trademark has been applied for there is an opposition process. This begins with the applicsnt of the too similar trademark being told there is the intention to oppose their application on the basis of similarity and giving them the opportunity to withdraw it. If they do not withdraw then a formal opposition process begins requiring the submission of legal arguments by both sides for an examiner to then consider. As this is a legal process the advice and services of an attorney or IP lawyer is necessary.
