Opportunity for a banking & finance lawyer to combine high-quality cross border work with a lifestyle that is unrivalled on the mainland. Based Jersey.
This elite offshore law firm offers banking & finance lawyers an opportunity to make a life-changing move without any compromise in quality of work or long-term career path. You will be joining a team that compares favourably with any major onshore practice, and which advises an international client base of banks, financial institutions and corporations, on the Jersey elements of high-value and complex cross-border transactions. You can expect a broad range of work with corporate/acquisition finance, debt capital markets and funds finance/real estate finance among the key areas of focus. There will be plenty of scope to take on responsibility and you will be involved in client-facing work and business development from the outset.
You will be UK/Commonwealth qualified with around 2 to 5 years’ relevant experience of high-value banking and finance work. The role comes with a competitive London level salary, an excellent bonus scheme and a good relocation allowance. Opportunities for progression, in what is a fast-growing firm, are excellent.
The Channel Islands
For a city-based lawyer who thrives on big ticket work but craves an escape from the rat race, few places compete with the Channel Islands, home to two of the world’s premier offshore financial centres. Jersey and Guernsey have strong and highly competitive legal sectors, housing teams that number many alumni of the leading London or international outfits amongst their ranks. They do complex blue-chip work, in a nice environment without the trappings of a big law firm culture. Work-life balance tends to be good, leaving plenty of time to enjoy what is an enviable coastal lifestyle and London is only an hour away making it easy to get that city fix when (or if) you need it.
Interviews will take place by videoconference with start dates typically three months later, depending on notice period. Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with licenses (where applicable) and relocation, including temporary accommodation on arrival.
