Some of the top lawyers in Singapore will get up to 9 months bonus payout this year.
The Straits Times reported that Drew & Napier and Rajah & Tann are giving fat bonuses across the board.
Harry Elias Partnership and KhatterWong are also giving big bonuses of 5.5 to 8 months to their staff.
The payouts even “spilled” to the non-legal support staff.
Small law firms however are unable to match such rewards. But they are “unfazed”, as there’s “hidden toll in work-life balance for those working in the top league.”
