Job Description

Senior Associate level Banking & Finance Lawyer – International work – excellent prospects for progression – Guernsey.

This prestigious offshore law firm is looking for an experienced banking and finance lawyer to take on a lead role in its fast-growing Guernsey team. This could be an ideal fit for an ambitious lawyer who wants to do high-quality international banking and finance transactions, but who is attracted, outside of work, to the more relaxed coastal lifestyle that comes with island living. As well as taking a lead on matters you will also play an active role in the team’s ongoing business development efforts as well as helping to mentor and supervise more junior colleagues.

You are likely to be UK/Commonwealth qualified with at least 5 years’ relevant experience of high-value banking and finance work and strong client facing skills. The role comes with an attractive London level salary, excellent benefits, and a good relocation allowance. Opportunities for progression through to Partnership 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.
