A Florida supplements company that calls its products Inner Armour is violating Under Armour's trademarks, the sportswear manufacturer alleged in a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday. In a complaint illustrated with pictures of the allegedly offending products, Under Armour says the supplements company has been mimicking its advertising videos and in some cases dressing models in a mix of Inner Armour-branded clothes and Under Armour gear.

A Baltimore architecture firm founded in 1977 by two Park School graduates and a friend has nearly doubled in size in the last two years, making its most ambitious bid for greater reach last month when it announced the expansion of its footprint to Colorado. In two years, Hord Coplan Macht has opened an office in Alexandria, Va., wooed top talent to its ranks, and worked to merge with smaller Denver-based SlaterPaull. The growth has brought employee count at the firm — which worked on Fells Point's Union Wharf apartments, Towson University's new SECU Arena, Morgan State University's Center for the Built Environment and Infrastructure Studies and the West Shore Park, among other projects — to 180, up from about 100 just two years ago. "We didn't sit down and say, 'Let's open up an office in the Rocky Mountain region someday, but we did make a strategic decision that being 100 and some people in one region … was — not risky, but rather restrictive to us," said CEO Lee Coplan, 63, one of the firm's three founders.

A lawsuit filed in federal court Tuesday alleging that the NFL loaded up players with medications came after a major Baltimore law firm spent more than a year investigating the claims. The suit, filed in California on behalf of eight retired players, alleges that the football league put its profits ahead of their well-being when they illegally gave players drugs without filling out prescriptions or warning them of side effects. "The NFL has supported a drug culture that has provided dangerous pain killers and anti-inflammatories for free to players for years with no warnings as to their side effects or the dangers of mixing them together and with alcohol,” said Steve Silverman, a partner at the firm of Silverman Thompson Slutkin and White.

The days of the cushy corner office for top law partners may be numbered. Maybe. On average, law firms still occupy up to three times the space per worker as companies in banking, finance, insurance and technology, according to a national study by commercial real estate broker Cushman & Wakefield. But with increasing pressure on firms to lower costs, that's expected to change, which has significant implications for office space in downtown Baltimore. Law firms occupy about 13 percent of Baltimore's top-tier office space, with many smaller firms leasing in older buildings, according to a 2013 report by commercial real estate firm Jones Lang LaSalle.
