You can file a claim against them in court (Small Claims court) or higher if you feel that damages exceed $10 thousand, and in your claim you would state the damages this other company has caused to your, ie, loss of business, confussion, etc. and you can also call the local office that deals with busness names in your area. The place where you got your business name registered.
