What about application to firms like SLB, DRD? Anyone has thoughts about WP Corp or Eng&Coís Corp team?

Which small mid sized firm is this. Attrition rate so high. Left 1 junior Assoc.
Donít apply anywhere please. Your partner will cry.

Make up your mind before you write your hypotheticals.
Are you small or mid sized?
Are you a team or a partner-assoc pair?

How is it a medium-sized firm if it's only a 2 man team. You have to be honest with yourself on whether you're a small-sized firm associate, and therefore it may be harder to upgrade to larger midsize or large firms.

I've heard it ranges around 3.5 (bare minimum) -4.5 (most small firms are closer to at least <4k), but that's excluding bonuses. You'll earn about 30% less than big law firms, but the difference will not be as big in the formative years (assuming your firms pays out around 3-4 months of bonus).

Also, if you're hardworking or good at negotiating, usually what happens is that associates will ask for a cut of the fees they generate. I've heard of chinatown lawyers under 3PQE earning 10-15k from chinatown firms, as they have deals where they get 10-20% of fees generated.

If you're not super ambitious, the partners make a really decent living. It's just that your earning at chinatown firms (those crim/family sweatshops) will top out at say 20-30k, whereas biglaw firms (if you slog for years and make it to equity level), will top out at alot higher.

Our PM has announced low wage regimes to be revamped and encouraged fair hiring. Does this apply to legal practice?
