Default lawyer pay

curious abt what type of lawyers earn the most in singapore? m&a/ litigation/ corporate finance/ IP? considering the next 50 years? i unds theres probably a difference in the lower tier/ middle tier/ upper tier of each category, but just wondering if anyone can shed some light on this.

Are you a student or practising lawyer?

Iíve heard it usually takes about a month or even slightly longer in light of COVID (and the people on the recruiting panel being very busy). All the best and do update if you receive any news.

AGC I thought take like total 1 year nia. Apply during student time take damn mother long to process and interview. Maybe diff for practising lawyer cos don't need to assess a lot of stuff.

(not big 4, just small firms)

will i incur any penalty if I accept a TC offer from one firm (small firm) then tell them a few weeks later that I have decided to accept a TC offer from another firm? ofc it looks bad but are there any other downsides, or should i just avoid doing this as much as possible
My one I went home after interview open email already got offer. I said wanted time to think about it, they jitao spam call me and pressure me to accept. In the end I went somewhere else (for other reasons).

KCL is the best school for aspiring barristers. It is way better than NUS. Name me a UK barrister from NUS and I will personally bow down and admit my shortcomings to you.

Anyway OP who decided on KCL over NUS. You made the right choice. The quality of education is the best. Harvard is second rate for barristers in the UK.

disclaimer: I'm a student so i apologise for any remarks which may seem ignorant

I heard it's easier to get a TC in liti/dispute resolution department in bad times like these. but i'm worried i won't like liti as i'm an introvert. if i don't like liti and i apply to be an assoc in the corporate department of another firm after my training, will it be very difficult to get a job as a corporate lawyer?

is being a liti assoc considerably more stressful than being a corporate lawyer in the same firm - i'm looking to apply to mid sized firms

on the other hand, let's say i like working as a disputes lawyer and do that for a few years. does that severely limit my ability to go in house, to the point where it would be almost impossible for me to get a decent in house position, if i have no connections and have average grades from a local uni?

can i go from being a disputes lawyer in private practice to working in a legal role in the public sector with only a weak second upper, in a role that does not involve me being a prosecutor? just curious even though i prefer the private sector for personal reasons

finally, is there a significant difference between litigation and arbitration work? i plan to take arbi mods in my final year. if i mostly do court cases during the TC that doesn't mean i can't do arbi work later on in my career, right? i think liti/arbi both should require similar skill sets?

Ans in Caps

I heard it's easier to get a TC in liti/dispute resolution department in bad times like these. but i'm worried i won't like liti as i'm an introvert. if i don't like liti and i apply to be an assoc in the corporate department of another firm after my training, will it be very difficult to get a job as a corporate lawyer? NOT REALLY IT DEPENDS ON THE FIRM YOU APPLY TO, WHERE YOU TRAIN AND WHAT MATTERS YOU DO. IT IS EASIER FOR CONTENTIOUS INSOLVENCY AND COMMERCIAL LITIGATORS TO HOP

is being a liti assoc considerably more stressful than being a corporate lawyer in the same firm - i'm looking to apply to mid sized firms YES. UNLESS YOU ARE IN BIG 4 CORP SG CORP DEPTS IN MID SIZED FIRMS ARE LARGELY 9 TO 6

on the other hand, let's say i like working as a disputes lawyer and do that for a few years. does that severely limit my ability to go in house, to the point where it would be almost impossible for me to get a decent in house position, if i have no connections and have average grades from a local uni? NO IT DEPENDS ON WHAT INHOUSE AND WHAT INDUSTRY. THAT BEING SAID IT IS HARDER FROM LIT TO INHOUSE

can i go from being a disputes lawyer in private practice to working in a legal role in the public sector with only a weak second upper, in a role that does not involve me being a prosecutor? just curious even though i prefer the private sector for personal reasons GRADES ARE NOT A LIMITING FACTOR IF YOU STUDIED LOCALLY. IF YOU STUDIED OVERSEAS THEY MAY BE

finally, is there a significant difference between litigation and arbitration work? i plan to take arbi mods in my final year. if i mostly do court cases during the TC that doesn't mean i can't do arbi work later on in my career, right? i think liti/arbi both should require similar skill sets? YES TO MY KNOWLEDGE BUT SOME KNOWLEDGE IS ONLY SPECIFIC TO ARBITRATION. SKILL SETS YES ROUGHLY THE SAME.
