Lol you gotta be joking. If you are a JLC that just ended his or her 2-year stint (or maybe did an additional year or two as AR), then you are extremely attractive to any local firm and also the dispute teams of most top international firms.

Of course, if you chose to stay on in service for many years after JLC, then your options narrow because you have gotten too senior without the relevant experience. But that's because the person chose to stay on after JLC, rather than their initial decision to become a JLC.

If you can't even find 1-2 examples, your research skills must really suck. There are tons of ex-JLCs in the disputes teams of international firms.

Going a bit deeper, A&G has a stronger public M&A team than WongP, although it's arguable that WongP has more of a focus on PE than A&G.

Culture at A&G >>> WongP.
Could you shed more light on the cultural differences?

I have friends heading to both and they’re afraid

IMO support is not great at Big4 but that's kind of the standard across Singapore firms.

Working at A&G, being exposed to these deals, and working with partners who have a reputation in the market will all help to build your CV and look for exit options. As far as I can remember, A&G M&A used to be the place where all the international firms poached their M&A associates from - seems that international firms have expanded to include R&T, WongP etc. into their hiring pool, but I'm pretty sure that A&G M&A is still preferable.
Sink or swim? Like how though

Exactly my point. Out of 20 JLCs every year, only 1 can be found in the “many who successfully joined disputes in International Firms”.
