Might as well go inhouse regulatory. Google always hiring for regulatory or investigations counsel.

Same considerations and hurdles - international firms are not going to want to re-train you, so will take you at a PQE cut (or not take you on at all). Unfortunately, DPP experience simply doesn't transfer across to corporate law.

You could try for liti roles (arbitration or white collar / investigations) with international firms, but there are often many suitable applicants for a very small number of roles. And you'd be up against liti ppl from B4 firms who probably have more directly relevant experience.

B4 will consider you for liti roles, and MAY consider you for corp roles (possibly with PQE cut), so this is definitely one way to get your foot in the door. But you'd also have to consider how much energy you have to re-train as a junior corp lawyer.

Civil service or public sector. Lower tier ministries or govt linked entities or stat board type of entities. Seriously.

Of course don't expect good pay. But the work you do is really a fraction of private sector roles. People go there to retire or stay for > 5 years, which is a rarity in most legal jobs

So DPP$ are those airheads who went above and beyond unnecessarily to “prosecute” drug offenders from less privileged families? I have personally dealt with them before and could say their arguments were not the most succinct/sharp but they were definitely the group who might bite on anyone’s a$$ whenever there’s an opportunity.

I’m not confident to categorise them even with big 4/int firms lawyers. The best label I can credit them for is being bureaucratical, but terms such as “commercial savviness” or even “savviness”, I would think twice.

How hard can criminal law be? It is a year 1 law module. The easiest subject in law school. Private practice lawyers deal with much more complex and specialist areas of law, much more demanding clients and pressures that a dpp will never experience.
