SC: Ashurst, HSF, NRF

And many of them do hire SG-qualified associates, though these tend to be people with stellar credentials (ex-JLC, NUS FCH/SMU summa, Oxbridge, international moot champions, etc). There is a much greater emphasis on academics and raw intelligence given the nature of disputes work at that level which calls for intricate legal analysis and argumentation.
Looking at the linkedin profiles of singaporeans in above firms, think you are correcct re the top US firms and MC.

Also, Hogan Lovells is silver circle, not US right?

Dont think the same applies for SC though…
