Just wondering what's the best way for a locally called (corp) lawyer to eventually join a MC or WS firm?

Read the FT or WSJ. Volunteer to be on cross-border transactions, preferably in lead counsel roles. Gain as much experience as you can on M&A or Funds or Reg (depending on where you are now). Be friendly to a good recruiter, let him or her know you are actively looking.

Have a hobby and be able to talk about, be it reading, running, football, scuba diving, horse riding.

Know more about the firms through formal directories and informally whether through RoF or ATL.

Be confident.

If after a few tries it doesn’t work - join A&G first (unless you are already there).

For MC- Join big 4/slb and do time there + take NY bar (ideally) or alternatively UK bar. You can then stroll into MC interview pretty easily. White shoe is diff ballgame. May need MBFC Tower 1 or MCpedigree.

Any chance for Malaysian to join MC or WS in SG?
Lets say from A&G's associate firm in MY (RL&P)

Or is practice in SG on another level compared to MY?

if at associate firm, then come over to the big 4 equivalent in Sing, do time (1-2 years) and uk bar to stand a chance for SC/MC. question to always ask is how do you stand out from the Big 4 crowd to gain that 1 x coveted spot. no shortcut to success unless extremely well-connected or lucky

As for WS, you generally need MBFC Tower 1 or SC/MC pedigree, unless extremely well-connected or lucky
