What's the law when it comes to trading names being the same?

I'm pretty sure that this person has been trading under this name longer than my company has been formed. However, at the time I formed the business, I searched Companies House database and the business name was available. I've gone ahead and paid for branding and advertising, including t-shirts, leaflets, domain name registration and website development.

I'm not sure where I stand or what my options are. If I trademark the name would it make a difference?

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
