There is no correlation between ethics and whether the firm is top tier one or not.

McKinsey is a reputable management consulting firm. It doesn't make them naturally more ethical (as their conduct recent years has shown)

There may be bad eggs in high powered law firms just as there are in small one-man shops. It can't be implied that lawyers from non-top tier firms are assumed to be less ethical or more prone to misleading the Court
agree.

unfortunately, it's just like how sg ppl like to judge what school and uni you went to.

i rmbr a hearing where one party was represented by Firm A, who had taken over from Firm B (a supposedly 'reputable firm'). Firm B didn't do some work properly or it appeared that they didn't advise accurately, something like that. IIRC the judge basically said something to the effect of he's sure Firm B wouldn't have done such a thing.

Litigation is where the most PCR infringements occur.

Not corporate. How many ethics cases involve litigation lawyers

Depends on the firm and which team you’re in. If your partner is a rainmaker, those days will be exceedingly rare.

That's because corporate lawyers are not really lawyers. Standard stuff day in day out.

i imagine it's because a lot of rules of conduct are addressed at the relationship between practitioners and the court.

i don't mean to defend any particular practice area but i think without a neutral 3rd party like the court overseeing the matter (viz. litigation), dubious corporate practices can sometimes go undetected e.g. false witnessing of signatures, backdating of contracts (for an illegal purpose) etc.
