Was it worth it? Do you have regrets?

Not a troll...genuinely interested to know. I am a junior lawyer contemplating this existential question as well. Lunches and dinners at the desk, late nights, burnt weekends and holidays, borderline depression half the time, non-existent social life.

Borderline depression sounds about right.

This is lame. Pls take your relationship concerns to Teenage magazine aunt agony section tyvm. The only advice I can give you is not to date within the profession.

OK back to salaries. What's the expected salary ranges for 5 PQE-ish litigation/arbitration Senior Associates in (i) local Big 4, (ii) local mid tier, (iii) international MC, (iv) international white shoe?

What about those who transfer right after they finish their practice training - do they continue to be trainees in the international firms (and for how long)?
