Thatís more than half a million a year.

Impossible for the SA to bill so much imo.

Also no clients will pay so much.
Lol frog in the well spotted. Go ask your peers working in international firms la, or a recruiter.

Even around half decade ago, even non-White shoe mid tier int'l firms like Norton Rose, Hogan Lovells were alr offering around $25-27K per month for ~6-7PQE senior assocs. Not keeping track since I went inhouse.

I can only imagine the numbers hv risen in the intervening years given the latest rounds of salary wars. And unlike our esteemed "prestigious" local firms doing "wAlL sTrEeT wOrK" like TSMP, Rodyk, R&T, international firms rarely if ever slash salaries during downturns (they simply fire assocs wholesale).

There's a reason why people here are obsessed international firms like they're the holy grail of pvt practice roles. Compared to the comp you can get as a junior partner in a local Big 4, the pay gulf is very real.,
