I am in a large firm called in 2016 and also UK qualified. The firm has since asked me to resign.
A 5 man sized law firm is willing to employ me but at a approx 50% pay cut (4.5k).
This is the only offer I can get. Should I take it or leave the legal profession?

Increment how much? Think just take it because other industries pay even less

What is your area of practice? $4.5k for 2.5pqe is a very bad deal and you should actively search for alternatives.

[QUOTE=Unregistered;111261]Insolvency[/QUOTE

Depends on how badly you want to stay in the industry.
If its the only way to stay, then take the job. The climb back up to where you were will be painful and difficult, but you can still call yourself a lawyer.

Although, i've had friends who waited jobless for over half a year and finally got offered a better position in a better firm for more pay.

Yeah but the prospect of 6 months without job is enough to mess up w the mind.
How your friends managed to go through the 6 months without a job?

Very bad deal - unless one of the 5 men is a reputable person in the industry. NQ pay at small-medium firm is 4.2k. You have pqe so please find a place that values you. 5 man firm needs you more than you need them.
