Liberalization is the way to go to broaden the sector, create more competitive legal market for both clients and lawyers. Not protectionism.

If the way forward is the absorption or collapse of some unprofitable local firms, even large ones, then so be it.

I predict that at least half of the top 10 largest local firms will either merge with an international, or fold, in the next 5 years. And I mean full financial and partnership merger, not a JLV or FLA arrangement.
Interesting that it was co-authored by the managing partner of Ashurst's Singapore entity (and also a counsel from the japanese firm Mori Hamada & Matsumoto)

Apparently there's a 40-page full version of the article

There will be big changes in the local legal scene in the years to come.

PSC Scholars are all creme de la creme. The top 60 out of 15,000 JC kids each year. I would take it any day.

Based on linkedin, almost all the PSC legal scholars go to Oxbridge for undergrad, then Harvard for masters
