Exclusive: four partners leave Dundas office in one week
08 February 2013
Four partners have left Dundas & Wilson over the last seven days, three in London and one in Scotland.
The departures mean that around 17 partners have left the firm over the past 18 months. They follow David Hardie's resignation
as the firm's Chairman after he made light
of a raft of redundancies, and the subsequent resignation of two of the firm's most senior partners
It's not clear how many of this most recent crop jumped and how many were pushed. Some insiders complain that the firm is shrinking its London office to concentrate on Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen, and say that morale is "at an all time low
". Others maintain that Dundas is merely toughening up on performance, and reckon that London may actually expand. Either way, that's an awful lot of resignations in just one week.

Caryn Penley, joint Managing Partner, told RollOnFriday that "we have been open about our plans to manage our business... We don't comment on individual departures or rumours. We are acting decisively to manage our business and some departures are a consequence of that
