In the West there's PAY SECRECY LAWS prohibiting companies from punishing workers who disclose their pay.

Obviously SG does not have this* D'Rodyk was able to punish lawyer.

Any idea about the pay at Morgan Lewis Stamford? Are they paying local B4 rates?

Ignore the troll. Iím a SG qualified junior lawyer and was relocated to London by a US firm as the same PQE I was in SG. I wouldnít say it was easy but your chances increase if (a) your practice area is in banking/M&A/funds/cap markets (b) youíre in a B4/international firm in SG and (c) youíve a FCH or its equivalent from a SG university or youíre from Oxbridge.

As youíll have to compete against other English qualified lawyers in the UK market who cost less to hire (if they do not require visa sponsorship), you need to think about your strengths and what you can bring to the table (eg mandarin speaking skills, high level of deal exposure).

Youíll be questioned on your motivations for moving abroad. Also be prepared to be grilled on your technicals during interviews as the partners need to assess your level of familiarity of the European market.

This story is very common nowadays so I won't call BS except for one part - "as the same PQE I was in SG". Talk to any recruiter and they will start laughing in your face if you say you want to get this. To put this another wat, you're basically saying you're a SG lawyer who got a 1.5 PQE promotion at the point of hiring. This doesn't happen. PQE cuts happen for a reason - because it's fair.

Iím the OP. English qualified US firm associates in the UK have to do a 2 year TC. I was a 1Y associate in SG, and I was a 1Y associate in my firm in London. In a way, it wasnít possible to cut my PQE because Iím 1Y. You may get a PQE cut if you move as a 2Y from SG but I canít say with certainty as I donít know anyone personally.

I know of someone who was a NQ (only with RLT + TC) in SG, and immediately taken as a 1Y associate with a US firm in the UK. That person got a PQE jump in a way, as other 1Y associates in the firm would have 2 years of training under their belt, while they had 1 year.

Itís also possible for you to be a 1Y in SG, and ask to be pegged as a 2Y for an associate role in a US firm. My recruiter was the one who suggested it but I wasnít keen because for marginally more pay, there are higher expectations placed on you as a 2Y. I think itís more important to look at the deals youíve been placed on, and your levels of involvement on each deal instead of solely focusing on PQE. Someone may have 1 year more experience than you but they couldíve worked on less deals than you during their training or only really handled administrative tasks as opposed to drafting/project management. Donít sell yourself short! Iíve found that firms in the UK are a lot more flexible with PQE but Iím aware that similar US firms in SG are not the same and would not take you as a 1Y in SG.

Is DRD a sunset firm propping itself up by combining with the Dentons to bolster the impression of its international capabilities? What is the gulf between DRD and the traditional B4?
