See where all the JLC and SC collect loh. Isn’t it best to be independent as a disputes lawyer. Get instructed or be IA.

This depends in Jones Day and Sidley.

Non-QFLP US shops may end up being more profitable because they outsource low margin SG work to SG shops. Quite a few of these pay full DPW.

No point doing disputes unless you love mooting and are a good orator or debater. Otherwise do transactional law better. Good litigation lawyers are born, not made.

Do any of the Singapore law firms have a particularly good venture capital / startup practice? Thinking that the best way to get to an international law firm like Gunderson or Cooley would be to specialise early.

Nope. Recent moves to Gibson Dunn make it clear that you minimally need to go Big4, and then enter at “SG-scale” (something near MC pay) . Go see the profiles of the few who JUST joined from A&G

Nothing is concrete until the offer letter comes. Say something non committal - excited, interested, etc but will need offer letter to consider holistically. Unless of course your push factors are immense.
