What do you do that is worth 21k per month?

Finance. I run smaller deals with the partner (1-1)/draft and negotiate finance docs/lead counsel negotiation calls etc. I typically pass off admin tasks/proofreading/compiling signatures/basic CPs etc to a paralegal or trainee (I struggle with delegating because Iím a first year and at a B4 you would have to do everything but the partners have told me nicely that these tasks should be delegated because itís a waste of my time and Iím too expensive lol). I do admit, I lucked out and managed to land on the other end of the pay spectrum where Iím grossly overpaid for a junior lol. My seniors who are 4PQE (UK scale) are drawing 29K per month before bonus ha

Average international firms here already paying $21k to $24.5k pm for junior assocs leh. Not even talking about top end ones like Sidley, Jones Day, Akin.

Talking about non-top tier ones like Hogan Lovells and NRF.

I think it was a culmination of factors - I moved jurisdictions, left a good impression in my interviews, it being an associateís market atm with recruitment, US firms were keen on hiring juniors so they looked past me being 1PQE on the SG scale (though I trained for a year). I lucked out because Iím considered 1PQE on the UK scale and not a NQ. Also I just applied with a ďyou wonít know if you donít tryĒ kind of mindset even if the associate role postings requested 1PQE and above on the UK scale LOL
