Two Competitors: Same GMB Category, Near Identical Name

Hi guys, I'm working for a plumbing business called 'Prompt Plumbing and Drainage Services'. In the same city there's a competing plumber with a nearly identical name 'Prompt Plumbing & Gas'. I'm concerned that one of them will be filtered from results because Google may believe they are the same business. Alternatively, conflicting listings on some of the major citation sources could make it difficult for the algorithm to trust the contact details of each business. If you've been in a similar situation, would you advise a name change, or should I not be concerned?
