You definitely could, and I'm sure your lawyer(s) would be happy to walk you through it. But it's more likely you'll get bored hearing the explanations - they can be pretty technical and may not be that interesting to a non-lawyer.

Heard it was a great bonus package.

Baker is an awesome place with huge increments and chunky bonus.

All thanks to superb leadership helmed by Andrew Martin.

s://.personneltoday.com/hr/senior-partner-criticises-high-pay-for-new-lawyers/

Quote:
Senior partner at Pinsent Masons Richard Foley, told the Innovative Lawyers Summit on 22 October that six-figure salaries for newly qualified lawyers were unjustifiable.

He said: “You see stuff in the press about £125k as a starting salary for an NQ [newly qualified lawyer] … If I was on the other side of the table, I would be thinking how much more value am I going to get from that person?”

Foley added: “The levels of pay in major private practice law firms are completely unsustainable.”
I look forward to the day when NQ pay is S$3k across the board

He's salty because his firm can't keep up, maybe because its not as profitable as the US and Magic Circles? Nobody is forcing his firm to anyway.

Pushing down NQ pay to $3K (i.e. auditor level payscale) will never happen. As it is, law firms are already suffering from a severe attrition of senior associates at the midlevel. Good luck trying to find people willing to do legal saikang at auditors' salary scales.

The question now is not the lack of work, but the lack of able bodies to do it. Ask any Big 4 partner and they will tell you how difficult it is to find senior associates.
