About

CRITique is a blog from the Commercial Team at the law firm of Charles Russell LLP: see us here

The blog started out as an internal vehicle for some of our IT lawyers to learn about blogging and blogs (hence CR IT ique).  For a while we played with WordPress internally – that explains the sporadic nature of the archived posts from 2008, which are the only ones left from those trial days.  At the time the blog was private. 

We always intended to go public, but the whole project was put on hold in anticipation of a relaunch of our website.  This was delayed until the move of our London office from 8-10 New Fetter Lane to brand new offices at 5 Fleet Place, and for a rebrand of the whole firm.   This explains  the apparent silence from 2008. 

The office move was completed on Monday, 9 March 2009 and the rebrand was launched on the same day.  So this blog went public on Friday, 13 March 2009. Seemed like a good date….. 

We intend to post items of news and comment concerning any aspect of commercial law that interests us. 

This blog is very much a work in progress. We’ll be sorting out the CSS so that it matches our parent website’s look and feel, once we’ve figured out which is the best WordPress Theme to hack!

Lastly, the inevitable legal bits…..
