It's definitely possible, but I'm not sure what you meant by "easily". Nothing is easy.

Unregistered Hi, what is the pay like for a first year partner(salaried) in the big local firms, or if possible, mid and mid/big firms like shooklin and TKQ etc.?

hi singlaw is 8.5k an average pay for 4pqe at the top 4 sg firms?
21-10-2008 05:57 PM


Thanks for the information.
Well, I am giving them the benefit of the doubt as:-

1) I will be switching from litigation to arbitration (not to mention that I am not admitted to the Singapore Bar as yet); and

2) I have yet to prove my capabilities in a different jurisdiction.

Hopefully things will be different once I have settled down with the job.

Am really look forward to the challenge!

Thanks again.

singa09: if you are getting only $4k, it means you have been dropped 2 years PQE as $4k is really NQ salary. 2PQE should be somewhere in the $6k range, at least in cartel. i'm at 4PQE and getting $8.5k base. some of my 4PQE peers at international firms are getting $12-$15k.

I am a +2PQE (with a Malaysian firm) who will be starting work as a foreign lawyer with the arbitration department in a medium-sized firm in Jan 2009 with a provisional pay of between S$3.6k to S$4.0k p/m.

Reckon it is a good starting pay?

4.5K is only for the larger local firms (though its since been upped to 4.8K - 5K at 1 or 2 firms). At foreign firms based here, its anything from 5.5K to I dont know, maybe 7 - 8K? On the other hand, lawyers in small firms are getting 3K plus even after 2 - 3 years.

If you want big money, do something else. If you want stability of income, lawyering isnt bad, I suppose.
