Low/bad this year. Almost none I've heard of had a good retention rate, even for liti. Corp - depends on firm. Some firms retained 0 corp

Default Advise Needed,... Baker, CC, AG

I need advise from the lawyers out there. My son has been tapped by Allen & Gledhill, Baker Mackenzie and Clifford Chance. Money aside (I know the foreign firms pay more), which of these would you recommend he join. I am being selfish here as he was also tapped by Allen Overy UK but I would very much prefer that he work in Singapore. I've lived and worked in London before and I am not too bullish of it post Brexit and the coming years. He will be graduating soon. Which of these 3 firms would position him for a long term legal career in Singapore. Which of these firms would springboard him within SG (for example with the foreign firm by son will not be SG qualified but UK qualified)? What are the pros and cons of each of these firms? Would he benefit more from a broad-based experience / training at the start vs specializing early on (capital markets + M&A)? The career paths for these firms are different due to their targeted clientele.

I am familiar with CC, Linklaters and Slaughters May, but not the branches in SG. I've engaged them a lot in my line of work in Mergers & Acquisition (I lead M&A teams globally).

Iím just glad that the people I know in the industry are mostly pretty nice and decent.
Don't take it to heart, like any forum this forum is full of trolls. Doubt they actually mean it

In disputes and thinking of switching to inhouse - anyone knows if taking a us llm would help? Maybe take some tech subject to switch gears a bit. Or is it just a waste of money and risky given the climate

Risky not worth. Might not get your payoff. Get the inhouse first think LLM later. For liti you can think compliance, employment, AML etc. Liti might be good as a wave of retrenchments are coming from coys

Your 24/25 year old son will benefit the most if you stop dictating his life choices.

I'm in litigation so I don't know much about corporate, but I have some minor experience in an international firm.

CC makes partners. It's a well known fact. You go to any non-White Shoe international, the partner trained at CC
