WP > R&T for corp generally except for specific niche practices. No need to take my word for it too, just check the chambers or legal 500 rankings. Team culture wise, can only speak for WP as I used to work there -> standards are very high for work quality. If you can match those standards, people are nice and I enjoyed working there.

Hi, Iím a junior in one of the tier one practices in a big firm. How does one achieve to produce high quality for Corp work? What are the things should you look out for yourself and remind yourself? One thing that my bosses tell me is to check and check and check. But Iím wondering if there are any methods or tips which you guys can share.

Does a T1 ranking for Corp depts = very high standards expected/bigger and more interesting transactions?

I guess first and foremost have a clear understanding of what the transaction is and what the document is trying to achieve. Only then can you check that the documents reflect the terms and contain the correct mechanics. Most importantly, you should check that the document is compliant with whichever law is being applied.

Moving from the macro to the micro, check that each clause in the document works as intended and do not conflict one another. Check also that the figures and numbers are correct (e.g. consideration is accurately reflected). Beyond that, the small details need to be checked as well, like the names of the parties, UEN, dates, cross-references, punctuation, etc.

The above is not meant to be comprehensive. I suppose at the junior level you should focus on getting the micro things right. Once you start to gain more experience and become more proficient in checking for the micro things, you can move onto the macro things. The sooner you can do this, the better, and the more value add you can bring.

But ultimately if you're not clear on the task, you should not be afraid to ask your bosses what they mean when they ask you to "check", on the assumption that you've thought about their instructions and still can't figure out what they want.

Yes, generally this is the case.

Tell me about it.

Subordinates are expected to be obedient yes men but yet possess leadership skills and take the initiative when needed.

The mind boggles and I wonder whether these seniors are even aware of the oxymoron in their expectations.

Who says go in-house need to take paycut, FAANG, other large tech coys and bulge bracket banks can offer salaries between BM scale and MC scale, excluding stock options
