LMAO you're the troll. Stop using strawmen arguments. Nobody said law salaries are high but you're peddling a falsehood.

I know of literally nobody at 6PQE who is earning $4.2K unless you're talking about part-time locum arrangements. I know a maternity cover lawyer who earned $5k pm, but that person was literally working half-days for 4 days a week, so 20 hours a week.

As I said before, and I'll say again: if you want a realistic perspective on what is the usual salary progression for a non-big 4 law firm, just take the Big 4 scale and less off 20-25% and you'll be in a more or less accurate range.

Agree on this and I know of several law guys earning $5-6k per month in big 4 with 4-5PQE, so the earlier poster is definitely a troll. Thanks for filtering whats untrue in the thread!

If there are people who are earning S$5-6k at 4-5PQE in local Big 4 law firm, they're being grossly underpaid. 3PQE associates at the Big 4 law firms are earning ballpark S$8k monthly (or at least S$7.5k).

I think a 4-5 PQE ten to twenty years ago earned $5-6k too... Meanwhile HDB prices continue to rise

in house lawyers - do you ever feel bored with your job and wish you were back in practice? sometimes i think the work is too routine and brainless.

And with regards to London not being as glamorous, yes I definitely agree! One thing I'd definitely stress to anyone looking to make a move to London is that your reasons for wanting to move should NOT include the money (bc tax here sucks you'd earn more in intl firm in singapore) or prestige (because let's face it, being a lawyer really isn't that prestigious). If you like the UK, want a change of scenery for a couple of years or would like a slightly better work-life balance, then by all means do it.
Can I say it's quite inspiring to hear from people like you who choose a path unlike most others. What prompted you to move to UK right after your training?
