Were you inactive on Instagram for over a year? If that’s the case they had no problem handing it over to the other company for the trademark claim. They do say they’re supposed to e-mail the offending party when a claim is made, but I’ve seen a majority of cases say this happened without any notification from IG. Your best bet would be to try and do a trademark claim yourself and explain your case.
