The mid-Atlantic US firm salary is completely hogwash - the majority of the SINGAPORE offices of those firms pay less than the MC SG offices for equivalent bands. These firms do not follow their UK or NY pay scales in Singapore - they pay significantly less here. And why should they?

On the so-called "Cravath US firm" - there are maybe only 3 firms that pay Cravath rates to ALL their SG associates. The remaining firms pay Cravath rates to a FEW top performers, on a discretionary and individual basis and this is also subject to a year or 2 of evaluation post hiring.
Fully agree with you. The fool doesn't is just spewing **** he read on rollonfriday or something

What about the salary bands for firms like NRF, Ashurst, HSF, Hogan Lovells?

Pray tell which self respecting top US firm pays less than MC? Donít count the local side of the shady jlv fla types, or the black box firm.

I knew someone who went to hk as a sg nq junior and earns around this much despite going in house early. But maybe because of practice area.

where does it state got exemption? Its an individual exemption so case by case basis, and not a confirm agreed exemption.

In any event, highly doubt they will exempt both exams as they need to do some sort of assessment to make some money. Also, if both exempted then every Singaporean will go and get it.
