What kind of lawyers they looking for. Surely not chinatown crim lawyers right? How many big 4 teams actually do pure crim/investigations? Wendell Wong's team in Drew, Hamidul Haq's and Yusfiyanto's teams in R&T, Jason Chan in A&G. Can't think of anymore
Baker McKenzie Celeste Ang does investigations too? Any feedback?

Agree. Don't even need to be locally qualified. Can still advise on data privacy. Easy peasy.

in your experience, which is a better move from a development and career progression standpoint:

(1) moving to one of the more 'up-and-coming' practices such as funds, fintech etc. in a B4 local firm

(2) moving to a more 'traditional' practice such as banking in an international firm.

(2) offers a much better pay package of course, but I have heard that lawyers who have trained in B4 are viewed better by the market due to the more rigorous training (and workload).

Grateful for your thoughts!

In house

Why not go in-house? Same legal skills, provide solutions to business, and without being assessed on your hourly billings?

Heard wmh pays their staff and associates very well, i was told even last year during covid they have received good increments and bonus.

Pick something that you at least like doing. If you hate regimentation, banking will kill you. If you hate everything, then go for the money.

What international firm are you taking about? Latham? CC? Ashurst? DRD? No one is gonna **** on your training if you go to the first couple and their peers.
