Lucre and Lycra

Denton Wilde Sapte (DWS) partners appear to be doing a good job at making each other giggle lately.

The other day, DWS chief executive Howard Morris called one of Tulkinghorn’s scribes. Morris began to leave a voicemail message, outlining his wish to discuss the serious matter of DWS’s year-end results.

At which point another, unnamed, cycling shorts-wearing DWS partner apparently preparing for a charity cycle ride crossed Morris’s line of sight. This was too, too hilarious for Morris, who proceeded to leave a rather bizarre voice mail combining turnover, profit per equity partner and chortles at hiss colleague’s Lycra-clad legs. On the other hand, it could have been the 6 per cent turnover rise he was laughing about.
