Ya lor.. juniors canít help but feel a bit jaded, esp cos weíre usually told to just suck it up and be thankful we have a job.. which is amplified when some law firms had decent revenue last year but used COVID as an excuse for shitty bonuses and annual increment for junior associates or even reduced trainee pay

If youíre not happy with your associate role just quit and move in house.
Most of my peers did and they have a better quality of life.
Donít bother comparing.

LMAO are you for real? There's nothing "in it" for small/boutique firms. People go there if they can't go to the big firm of their choice. That's like asking why people prefer to work in Bharat Bank as opposed to Barclays or Deutsche Bank.

I suppose piss poor pay may be ameliorated by better hours and better "mentorship" if the stars align, but wouldn't count on it. small firm associates are just as likely to be overworked and exploited by toxic bosses lol

To solve the problem of overseas and local grads,
Itís actually quite easy.

Make it much longer for an overseas graduate to qualify. Instead of 2 years currently for a UK grad, make it 3 years.

Pray tell whatís the logic behind this? You need extra years head start so they canít compete with your for jobs?

Would just like to say that mid-level (2-5 PQE) transactional lawyers in London and the USA (NYC and Chicago in particular) are in very hot demand, and the usual supply of Aussie laterals cannot happen for obvious reasons.

My firm's M&A team is almost totally depleted (pandemic burnout) and they're desperately trying to lateral. Same for the competition team, funds team, etc.

If anyone is jaded in Singapore and would like a pay bump, I'd advise them to reach out to a recruiter in those countries and look at moving!
