Enjoy your online forum trolling while entire B&F teams are lateralling into internationals

The top BF teams are literally having to turn away work, even last year during Covid.

New SQE system

Hi! Does anyone know how to take the SQE in Singapore? I thought Kaplan was administering it but I emailed them and they said they don't have such a course. I'm sq qualified but want to get UK qualified too. Many thanks to anyone who replies!!

not sure if i made the right choice in all honesty, haha, since i did not intern at a&g.
It's actually the opposite. A&G, being the larger team, is actually the one with more specialised teams (like a dedicated ship finance team). The WP team takes on all the bread and butter banking matters and also handle the main financing areas like project finance and leveraged acqui fin, but they dont have the bandwith to handle the more niche areas.

If youíre worried over whether A&G over WP was the right choice for you and your concern was about culture, itís most probable that A&G was the right choice. Itís widely known that partners at WP are extremely tough on associates, and it takes a lot of grit to stay in the team. Comparatively, A&G has nicer partners but brutal hours. If you chose B&F and you want to work in the top teams, you should expect nothing less but excruciating hours, your time becomes very unpredictable and at the mercy of your clients/partners. I speak from experience. This will also be the case in the B&F teams of MC and US firms. That being said, I like B&F because deal flow can be cyclical, most deals donít drag on, work is fast paced and thereís familiarity in documentation (eg precedents, LMA, APLMA) but room to innovate (eg deal structuring).

Since youíve chosen A&G, donít fret over this. Just go in, try your best and learn as much as you can. Itís most important you build a strong foundation as a trainee and A&G provides you that - law school is nothing like practice and being academically excellent often does not equate to having legal capabilities required for practice. Once you qualify as an assoc, your options increase exponentially. Recruiters will be knocking on your door because B&F lawyers are often in high demand, especially from WP and A&G. If you want to move to WP as a NQ B&F assoc then, they would be jumping out of their seat to hire you.
