Itís not practical to look at the lavish lifestyle of old-timer law partners from small sized firms, because they had it better in their early days.

For context, in the 1990s, itís possible to get a CCR condo for under $500,000 and a reasonably sized landed property (semi-d) for just above a million dollars.

My father for example, was able to amass over 5 condo properties during the time period of 1980-2000. Heís not a lawyer.. just a civil servant at SingTel (Electrical Engineer).

During that era, ABSD were non-existent and cost of living is significantly lower.

These days, even if you are a lawyer, you will have trouble affording a mature estate 5 room HDB flat, not to mention a private condo or landed property

Hi friends

What are your thoughts on taking on professional support lawyer roles in firms? Say in an international firm. No billing requirements, hours good, lower stress.

Assuming one knows that they do not want to be a partner and stay in practice, and maybe end destination is inhouse or government / civil service.

Do you think a PSL role is a good midway point?

The top international firm arbitration teams will happily recruit lateral associates from B4 (though it depends on the specific partner you work for also). They are unlikely to even shortlist candidates from a place like two birds.
Besides CC what other international firms would be considered up there?

Sounds like a technical / salaried partner role though - Why are you looking at this
