When Tim Bratton, the general counsel of the prestigious Financial Times, casts his pen into the ring of blogging, it is good to take note and doff the hat. Even if Bratton disagrees with my earlier “tossed off” post about DLA Piper and its minimum fees requirement, I am delighted to welcome him to the small fold of law department bloggers (See my post of Sept. 22, 2010: Jon Olson’s General Counsel Diary; and Feb. 8, 2011: Perry Cone and Leading Inhouse.).
Bratton broke the bottle on his blog ship in November 2010 and has posted about a dozen times since then. Welcome, Tim!
