Branding Redux

Apropos of the earlier discussion on law firm branding, the National Law Journal reports that the firm now known as DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary "is expected to announce in September that it is taking a new,  shorter name to strengthen its international brand. . . ."

One of the managing partners is a good friend, and I am willing to pass suggestions on to him.   I'm thinking maybe something made up and techno, like Altria (old Philip Morris) or AXA.  Right now, I'm leaning to Intimidex over UniLex.   Wait, wait, how about IntimiLex?

Wait, wait. I'm going to display a complete butchery of intellectual property law (I think), but assuming there's no technical infringement of the Imitrex trademark, are you saying there is a risk of confusion between a drug that cures a headache and a law firm that gives a headache?

IntimiLex might be too close to Imitrex (migraine reliever)! how about LexiDate! Though that might be better for JD-Date web personals.

The case of Lexis v. Lexus is a classic here.
