s://.straitstimes.com/singapore/cut-pay-for-ministers-spore-will-pay-price-esm-goh
"Edwin Tong, a lawyer, took a 75 per cent pay cut when he became a senior minister of state on July 1. Mr Tong previously earned more than $2 million a year as senior counsel and now makes about $500,000..."

As a local law student, its stories like this that inspire me through my darkest mugging days. May I ask the hive mind here what area of law did Edwin Tong go into to make his 2 mil annual package?

No wonder you are a lawyer to be and not a mathematician

$2m is not a lot for the top in the industry or any industry for the matter, you know?

For the hours and the work,$2m is actually quite little.

You should go and search other industries top earners.

But if you are doing law for the money, I suggest you quit now because you will be extremely miserable.

They only announced Edwin Tong's last year's total renumeration after his payout from the high profile City Harvest litigation case.

It may also be the final accrued payout from a few years of work on the case or even the stipulated gratuity/profit sharing portion in his contract from his law firm after "x" years of service.

Edwin Tong was joint head of Litigation in A&G. $2 mil is actually somewhat low considering his portfolio.

I think the point to be made is if you want to be rich dont be a lawyer. Be a business owner or a top tier banker/investment or PE manager.

Being a lawyer is to trade the highest earning potential for stability and slow and steady growth in income over the years in tandem with your professional experience.

It is a profession which provides a gateway to a middle to slightly-upper-middle class income at relatively low barriers to entry. All you need is to get into NUS / SMU (or buy your way into a 2nd or 3rd tier overseas law school if your grades can't make it). Compared to finance where only the 5% of outstanding new business graduates make it to prestigious roles in banking and the top 5% of them have prestigious exit options into PE or IM.

When you compare apples with apples at the associate level, a home grown singaporean will always find Singapore offices of MCs and US firms more attractive than London. I personally did the math when approached by a recruiter for a London MC role, and it made zero financial sense to move. The additional tax and expenses in London alone would have left me over S$70,000 poorer per annum. Naturally I chose to stay.

Things become very different at the partner level though. London has far more volume, and far more high value headline transactions which generate huge revenues. Recovery in London is generally higher too - Asian clients tend to skimp and bargain on fees, and refuse to pay reasonable uplifts even when fee assumptions are breached. The recovery ratios in Singapore are atrociously bad, which affects profitability. On the whole, SG partners almost invariably earn less than London partners of the same seniority, even after factoring the effects of higher tax rates.
And I wonder what was this guy offered in SG, mid-sized firm no less...
