Scottish firm Biggart Baillie has introduced a new bonus structure for its assistants and associates that will see its non-partner lawyers increase their remuneration by as much as 20 per cent.
The move was made as a result of feedback from fee-earners last year, who responded to a call from Biggarts management board for a review of the bonus system. The result was a new department-related bonus that sits alongside Biggarts' existing individual performance-related bonus.

Last year the 41-partner firm posted a turnover of £17.5m.
