Welcome to CapBiz A.M., your morning primer on business news with a focus on Washington.

At-work work out: Where there are cubicles, there are customers for those in the emerging “standing desk” industry. And that makes the D.C. market a prime target for a pair of local entrepreneurs whose products are designed to help workers stay on their feet when they’re in the office. (WP)

Conflict of interest: Not everyone at Patton Boggs and Squire Sanders, which last week announced plans to merge, will be joining the newly created Squire Patton Boggs. Conflicts between clients could preclude some from joining, and others may just go their own way. (CapBiz)

Successful hand-off: Metro officials took control of the Silver Line from the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority on Tuesday — a move that all but guarantees that passenger service will begin before the end of August. (WP)

Trump trumpets Trump: Real-estate and investment mogul Donald Trump stopped by the National Press Club in Washington Tuesday to talk about branding. Instead, he talked mostly about, well, himself. (WP)
