heard that a certain big 4 firm has increased assoc salaries by around 10%, and the other big 4 firms are going to be following suit. Anyone can confirm this?

Why is everyone saying that the best law grads go to the international firms? I dont really get it - looking at the CVs of intl firm trainees, doesnt seem to be any better from those in leading big 4 practices

Which? It makes a difference y'know. The difference between the top and bottom feeders has always been a few hundred dollars.

Idk tbh but it really does seem to be the case.

I suppose it's because the prospects of partnership at an intl firm is low and they know that there's a bamboo ceiling there? My friends at intl used to say you can forget about partnership as an Asian.

The partnership carrot used to be a strong incentive at the big firms. But a lot of big firms are also making up less and less associates

If you are at the top of your batch, you go to one of two places: JLC for disputes and CC for Corp. Google "Chief Justice Prize Nus Law Linkedin" and you will see that this has been true for the past 5 years.

Default Recent pay for TSMP?

Anyone knows what the pay at TSMP is like right now post-COVID? Or for the matter, the pay for NQs at mid-sized firms (e.g. Lee and Lee)?
