    Not that it really matters a lot to me, but I am very curious as to why this firm has a name which has apparently been derived from vertebrate palaeontology…specifically the famous avian fossil Archaeopteryx…having a Biology background myself.
    Someone please explain before I have a “bird” (so to speak)!

    No problem….it’s all about money and success ,no matter the biology backgrounds which need not be worshiped……..
