Agree with this. Can also try FIs or unicorn start-ups (think fintech).

Difficult in commerce and industries unless you're PQE 8-12 (Country/regional GC roles, easily 25k in MNCs) or if you specialize in IP (think luxury goods/FMCG/biochem), in which case PQE 4-7 can command 5 figures.

Yes. To the OP asking about family law.
The ^ quote is an accurate representation of what working in a family law firm will be like, esp this: "Doesnt matter if you represent the asshole husband. The most important thing is get paid."

As i said, go in with you eyes wide open.

you're looking at around 7k.
Should try to negotiate for a cut of the files you handle instead. More worthwhile.

Apologies, i should have been more specific.
At PQE 5, you should be looking at around 7k.

After PQE 5, a lot depends on whether you make partner, whether you can bring in clients, whether you can nego a fee-sharing arrangement. There's a wide range of salaries from PQE 5-10 at mid-size firms.
