The article reports that Denton Wilde Sapte chief executive Howard Morris is launching a radical review of the firm's controversial discretionary bonus system for partners in a bid to stop partner departures at the firm. Morris is consulting with the firm's board and partners and expects to issue proposals to the partnership by the summer. Bonuses, meanwhile, are allocated across eight bands. Last year, each band was worth just over pound 30,000. Former chief executive Virginia Glastonbury faced criticism for maintaining key roles on the remuneration.
