The term amicable solution is used not only in trademark-related issues to describe solutions reached without arguing or quarrelling. When you resolve an issue amicably, it means you are friendly and congenial during the process of negotiations.

When an issue arises during the trademarking registration process, the emphasis is put on achieving solutions amicably.

If you receive an opposition, it is beneficial to reach out to the third party that filed the opposition to find a solution that wouldn't involve further litigation. One such solution is signing a co-existence agreement.
