It's all marketing.

And lawyers are braggier than most hehehe. We're quite alike insurance and property agents in that sense, just more cerebral. Plus most lawyers hv the tendency to think that they're smarter than other lawyers - search your feelings, you know it to be true.

Whenever there's ranking - the very notion implies there are "better" lawyers, you wouldn't escape people tooting their own horn.
That's why I gave up sosher media. Bcos I have nothing to brag about.

How do you tell lawyer A doing one agreement is better than the other? Apart from how much the client likes you?
client here. to me the better lawyer is the one who brings less stupid non-commercial unimportant **** to my table.

Jesus, everyone in Law is so suspicious and jaded. Of course not. How will they even find out?

The firm you're interviewing at isn't going to call your current firm (without your permission) unless they already want to hire you, in which case I assume you're going to take the offer anyway.

Other than CC, do any of the other MCs with presence in Singapore (e.g. Links, A&O) offer local training contracts?

I can honestly say this is the exception rather than the norm in B4 (I've heard of shouting cases ofc but that's where there has a been a massive screw up and trust me in that case the shouting is the least of your worries). U cant get away with that **** even as a senior partner in a large firm where lots of people are minded abt the firm's reputation.

It's more likely to happen in a small firm where it's just u and the partner most of the time.

I can safely say that this is a norm rather than exception for a particular b4
