yes b&f is my intended practice, i applied to all big 4s for b&f, got offers from all 4 firms and ultimately picked a&g over wongp because a&g has a bigger team and not as specialised as wongp. at least that was the impression i got during my internship at wongp b&f (even the partners said their b&f practice is quite specialised).

not sure if i made the right choice in all honesty, haha, since i did not intern at a&g.

1. A&G B&F is a tier 1 team and they do some of the best deals in the region. The team produces top notch work, and you will get great training. The SAs put in a lot of effort to train PTs. The assocs in the team are really lovely. Most international firms like to recruit from A&G B&F so itís a great career launchpad.

2. Hours are excruciatingly long and itís the worst amongst other B&F teams in SG. Itís not for the faint hearted. Deal flow is extremely high. Be prepared to juggle a lot of files.

3. The learning curve is very steep. You have to be independent to run deals and you fall behind if you donít pick things up quickly. The partners are nicer than some batshit ones at other B4 B&F teams but can be demanding and harsh. B&F is generally a cut-throat practice area with high client interaction, tight timelines and necessitates an acute attention to detail but it also has one of the best exit options and most sought after practice areas for lateral recruitment.
