Dechert is not a white shoe firm.

What about Latham, Sidley, White & Case, Sherman etc.? Do they actually pay more than MCs in SG?

As if you know the profile of people asking questions on this thread. If you donít have the answer then keep your useless bitter comments to yourself maybe?

Seriously the "big 4" in singapore should really clean up their act. They are paying peanuts comparing to those mc and white shoe firms. If they want to be like a miser, dun call themselves "big 4"

Are you in a proper international firm that practices billing by the hour?
Big four does mainly Singapore law work and local companies will not pay if you bill them by the hour. Your junior associates can only bill at a certain rate in SG dollars.
For the ďrealĒ international, they bill in USD on a per hour basis and international junior associates charge out a minimum of US$500 an hour. This justifies their pay package.
But the work they do again is for instance, US securities or international arbitration where you can command such a rate for the kind of work being produced.

As far as I know, the only US firms which pay Cravath in Singapore are LW and Milbank. Getting into one of these two is practically hitting paydirt. NY salary at Singapore tax rates.

Most of the rest pay mid-Atlantic rates (above MC scale).

I've heard of only one US firm which has tried to fob off el-cheapo near local rates onto their local hires, and it was for a new disputes practice they were trying to establish. Won't name and shame because it's always risky to spread rumours about an organisation with the determination and the means to protect their reputation.

In truth you're a first from kings, ferrying cecas around in a grab.

Looking for serious and genuine advice. I am a SG qualified lawyer with 2PQE. I am looking to go to Dubai to work as a lawyer. Pay package is AED700K a year excl bonus. Tax free on the total amount. Plus AED62K living allowance. 4x Business class flights to Dubai. Should I consider this viable?
