Lame. We're talking about LA positions for local firms. You realize most legal recruiters don't focus on the local law firm space right? Do you even law bruh.

Okay pls talk to others. Donít wanna waste time on juniors who seem green
So many people with top credentials in the end have left
They were first movers, getting in to the international before even the 2:1 in this forum had a chance. And yet they have left for other things

How is Clarence Lun doing? He seems to be a bit quiet as of late but I can see he is still fervently hiring as usual.

Local firms you work hard until 4am you might still find favour.

International firms 4am alone is not enough.
You need a different set of skill there that I dare say a majority of us are not equipped to deal with. Thatís why most can jump but barely last more than 2 years

What are you on about mate. Thereís no magic skill set that makes a foreign lawyer better than a Singaporean lawyer. Most leave because they like most young people now donít see a long term future in practice.

Favour cannot eat. 2 years earning MC, mid atlantic or cravath already better than 2 years as associate or senior associate in big 4. Different strokes for different folks. You want to be business owner asap stay in local firm become partner make it rain. You want high paying job and better recognition for in house roles go international.

Thatís even before refuting the argument that local lawyers cannot thrive in international firms. Its not even about work ethic. Singaporeans in general are already more studious and hardworking than most foreign talent. Its about working smart and being able to build relationships with colleagues and clients from different backgrounds, countries, races etc. Many have thrived and many will continue to. You just need the awareness and humility to learn and recognise that Singapore is but a small cog in the global machinery of commerce.

You must have hailed from a delisted law school to be saying such things.

Nuanced argument? Get outta here this is a playground for uneducated and apparent non-lawyers pretending to be one in order to satisfy their bruised egos after a long day of abuse at the office.
