Just check the Gibson Dunn’s SG directory, you’ll see all the B4 assocs who recently joined are “staff attorney”.

On curious note though, anyone knows how much these “staff attorneys” earn?
Isnt that a fancy term for paralegal

What matters most however is how many years they are going to shave your PQE.

SG NQs won’t be hired by US shops - earliest probably 2PQE but they are likely to give you 1st year or less pay.

Jokes on you if ceca professions list is expanded to include lawyers in future. Same sheet has already beleaguered the bankers and doctors professions, what made you think you are so special as to be immune to ceca?

Replying to post #14427

-I’m not from KCL - the person who replied you was a troll

-I wouldn’t have looked elsewhere so early on in my career if B4 pay wasn’t so incommensurate to the demanding hours/high expectations

-Some SG recruiters and B4 associates know who I am

-Yes, the partner at my current firm lets me lead nego calls on security docs and he chimes in when needed. I was trained very well by B4 partners to function above a 1PQE’s typical job scope

-I’m working at a US firm in London (yes taxes suck compared to SG and COL is high but the deals are more complex, I get to work with the biggest FIs, funds and PE shops in London/US and culture is better)

-I’m on the DPW scale (I’m 1PQE on the SG scale and in my current firm I’m considered a 2020 qualifier ie 1PQE on the UK scale). I’m drawing the £ equivalent of 205K USD annually.

Trying my best not to dox myself but if you find out who I am, please feel free to reach out on LinkedIn. I know my story seems unrealistic but I didn’t mean to share it to make others feel bad/less about where they are. I apologise if it came off that way! I was hoping to encourage other corporate juniors feeling stuck to go out and explore their options.

No, I know this person but I’m not them. You’re getting closer (would really appreciate if you didn’t disclose any further specific details here please)!

Word. Gotta distinguish between US firms than came here through their London office or straight up acquired a SG practice vs a US firm that came directly.
