1 March marked the change in name of Blake Dawson to Ashurst. Generations of tradition (and goodwill, too?) replaced in the name of globalisation. Perhaps it is indeed the way of the future, but at least some of us had mixed feelings. The changeover was supported by a slick campaign, with strict instructions that anything with the old name can now only be used internally. However, even though the screensavers and mousepads were updated, the coffee cups survived!
