Still same. I don't think 75% allows a practical split. It means 1/4 of the employees have to work from home

M&A will always be in-demand. For capital markets work, it really depends on the jurisdiction - SG IPOs are dead, for example. Restructuring are fine too. Funds is an up and coming practice area.

In terms of relevance to in-house roles, Iíd say general corporate, M&A and even some capital markets experience will be useful.

WFH is still default for the big and mid sized firms, barring skeletal staff presence. Afaik, only the seccys and office managers are in office for admin work and accepting documents.

Howís work as an in house liti general counsel? Heard typically pay cut 10%-20% plus take on more substantial work as compared to law firm at 2-3PQE level.. wanting to jump but afraid that Iíll be even more burnt out than I already am.

There are rarely any pure ďlitiĒ in-house counsel roles. Not in Singapore at least. An in-house counsel needs to be a generalist and corporate skills are a lot more relevant and valued - major disputes are usually rare for most companies. Companies who hire litigators usually put them in an operational role, think running the day to day contractual documentation rather than being involved in higher level work like M&A. IMO this means youíll burn out a lot quicker because youíre usually dealing with low level contract / procurement managers and thereís a lot of volume work.

Also, the pay cut usually happens only if you stay too long in practice because you wonít have the corporate drafting skills required. A match is usually possible <5PQE.
