Is the New York bar useful for the purposes of transitioning to a UK firm?

As for WS, you generally need MBFC Tower 1 or SC/MC pedigree, unless extremely well-connected or lucky
I wanna go to international from B4 as a NQ/1PQE. Where's good for disputes and has a track record of hiring straight from B4?

Lets say from A&G's associate firm in MY (RL&P)

Or is practice in SG on another level compared to MY?

Have a hobby and be able to talk about, be it reading, running, football, scuba diving, horse riding.

Know more about the firms through formal directories and informally whether through RoF or ATL.

Be confident.

If after a few tries it doesn’t work - join A&G first (unless you are already there).
