I dont know about the figures for junior partners but I doubt even the fresh ones are making so little - the 15k figure presumes that there is no pay bump from assoc to SA, and from SA to JP.

Personally I know of a few batchmates who made partner after 3-4 PQE in small firms and they are making >15k at that level too

Yep. The MC figures the previous poster gave are accurate but the B4 junior partner salary is definitely wrong.

Let's be real - there are no B4 partners on this forum. So people who have been giving figures have been pretty much just been guesstimating, but 15k is a terribly inaccurate estimate given what we know of annual increments and SA pay at B4.

I am confident that a B4 partners outearns the MC assoc at the same PQE. Before partnership, the MC assoc will definitely make significantly more, especially at the early years.

Not sure the exact figures a B4 JP can pull but I have heard my JP mentioned several times that he was offered an senior assoc role in a MC firm previously with a substantial payhike mainly because of the perceived glass ceiling at itl firms.

Not a bad idea for those who seek a good balance between financial stability and working hours if you can pull that much as a partner in a small firm

yeah but odds are your clients are not based in singapore which means your working hours would cater to theirs - so no work life balance too.
