Ten Law Firm Names That Make You Scratch Your Head: Do Egos Continue To Drive Law Firm Naming Conventions.

Law firm names have always driven me crazy.  I’ve worked for firms where people fought to get their name on the letterhead.  I always thought the traditional naming convention of placing the partners’ last names in a long string of words was pretty idiotic.  Why would a company full of massive egos create the potential for yet another ego fight? 

I have never used my last name as a law firm name.  Here are ten law firm names which will certainly make you scratch your head: 

  1. Payne & Fears
  2. Low, Ball & Lynch
  3. Weiner & Cox
  4. Smart & Biggar
  5. Ziffren, Brittenham, Branca, Fischer, Gilbert-Lurie, Stiffelman, Cook, Johnson, Lande & Wolf
  6. Ball & Weed
  7. Boring & Leach
  8. Bickers & Bickers
  9. Slaughter & Slaughter
  10. Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen

Wow, that is priceless! Egos apparently do reign in the law firm naming department!


I'd like to see the elevator pitch for Weiner & Cox... or the banner at the company picnic.


It appears that some of these partners egos are so big, that they are willing to suffer a ridiculous firm name in order to ensure that their egos continue to be stroked.

You know that there was a lot of fighting in Ziffren, Brittenham, Branca, Fischer, Gilbert-Lurie, Stiffelman, Cook, Johnson, Lande & Wolf over whose name comes first!

Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen

Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen was founded by a father and his three sons: George Allen, Sr.; George Allen, Jr.; Wilbur Allen; and Ashby Allen. It was a family firm in 1910 and today, of their 21 attorneys, eight of them are Allens.

I actually like the Allen, Allen... name. It screams family values!
