Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw will soon slim down its name, striking two names, two commas and an ampersand. Beginning Sept. 1, the Chicago-based firm that has a 76-lawyer office in Houston will be known simply as Mayer Brown. The firm has used the Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw name since 2002, when Chicago’s Mayer, Brown & Platt merged with London-based Rowe & Maw. The firm has about 1,500 lawyers in 14 offices, including seven in the United States and seven outside the country.
