Hi there,

A trade mark is a sign which can distinguish your goods and services from those of your competitors. if it is similar to an existing one , then the company holding that similar trademark can stop you as it can mislead their customers.

You can search the trademark database, online using the below weblink, to see if your proposed trademark is similar ,alike to existing one-

If you need further assistance, please let me know.

Thank you and all the best.
