RHTLaw Asia is hiring associate. Thinking of joining

How is the working environment there? Do associates do solely legal work? Or are they like glorified secretaries?

Corp lawyers at mid sized are mostly glorified secretaries. If you like Paya Lebar go for it!

Default Junior associate billing pressure

Go back to berating juniors for "not working hard enough" while you got in during early during the good times, like our out of touch million dollars politicians.

How many hours are junior associates expected to bill on a monthly basis? If said junior associate doesnít meet those billing hours, what happens? I doubt they are shown the door due to the shortage of associates now..?

At the risk of being cynical, I think working conditions for small firms will continue to remain crappy. Most small law firms are too disconnected from the wider industry to be shaped by progressive trends.

The typical abusive and exploitative 65-year-old small firm proprietor close to retirement is hardly going to inform himself about what is appropriate or inappropriate treatment of his employees, nor is he going to be perturbed at the fact that what's acceptable treatment 30 years ago isn't acceptable today.

The best advice I can give to juniors is, to know your worth and don't be gaslighted or accept abuse. The toxic, previous-generation mindset that "you should be grateful to be employed" and "youngsters should slog it out without complaints in their formative working years" does not and never did hold water.
Totally agree.. I realised the toxicity builds up after one stays for sufficiently long time at a toxic firm. I guess itís alright to switch firms regularly if that happens; do law firm recruiters take issue if your resume shows you firm hopping?
