The MC brand name >>> B4 and you can start gaining valuable experience for your CV from day 1. Also, you won't have to compete with your other B4 peers when you are looking to lateral into an MC a few years down the line. I just think the benefit of doing your TC at B4 doesn't outweigh the benefits of starting at MC (but that's my personal opinion).

As for the QLTS (now SQE) for E&W qualification, yes, you can 'easily' get that while working in B4. But I think MC / US firms in SG don't really care about E&W qualifications. US firms may care a bit about NY qualifications (and definitely if you intend to do US capital markets work). Just look at the profiles of SG lawyers in MC/US firms in SG - that will give you an idea of how many have E&W / US qualifications.
True that nowadays (on linkedin) more DPPs jumping out to MC / Silver Circle firms? Successfully

I can confirm this is correct. BM is remodelling itself to become more along the likes of a Mid-atlantic / silver circle firm, and the new pay structure reflects this. It has also been recruiting real quality of late, including a number of FCH and ex-magic circle lawyers.

LOL at the last part - name some? I know there is recruiting ongoing but it's pretty much ex-B4 and mostly in the litigation teams. The top quality corp lawyer aren't touching that with a ten-foot pole.

For those who moved inhouse, what are the pros and cons?

Are the hours and stress just as much as in practice (big 4 especially)?

Traditionally mid-Atlantic pays between MC and Cravath. If you are not there then youíre being discounted.

Though nowadays some MC firms (see in London) are getting cheaper than others on associate salaries.
