If u want to do corp, better move ASAP. small mid firm doing liti + corp means you're more or less a small firm litigator doing the occasional contract review work. very sub-optimal exit options unless you really want to stay in liti.

need to pivot entirely to corp in a reputable large firm for optimal outcomes. your liti experience for the past year will be disregarded entirely. You'll more or less be regarded as starting from scratch as a corp NQ

How do you actually broach the topic with partners that you want to change to Corp? I just did my Liti TC and got retained in a liti role, my firm is quite reputed in liti but I don't want to keep doing liti.

Do people actually succeed in getting intra-department transfers? Or do I need to apply to another firm and start again.

Clueless NQ checking in. How do I network? Foreign grad + Zoom Part A/B so I donít really have friends in the industry.

Just mingle with people and be nice. Don't be so uptight, you might work on opposing sides but be professional.

Just quit law outright and give the government an excuse to import cecas to replace you.

Sometimes they also take in some straight As students to give themselves some respectability. You can be one of them.

Anyway you cannot compare an average GP with the average lawyer because GP is the lower-half of the medical profession. You should compare a top GP with an average lawyer.

I don't have the exact figures with me, but gut feel it should be $25k per month versus $15k per month, respectively.
An Average lawyer is definitely above the GP as there is a big difference in the salaries
