A commercial lending company based in St. Louis has won the right to continue to call its business Omicron Capital, staving off an injunction and trademark challenge by a New York hedge fund of the same name.

In Omicron Capital LLC v. Omicron Capital LLC, 05 Civ. 0960, Southern District Judge Robert W. Sweet held that, given the sophistication of the consumers and the differences in the two businesses, there was little likelihood of confusion.
