Practice Area Banking & Finance
This elite offshore law firm is looking for an Associate to join its highly respected banking and finance team in Jersey. You will be working closely with some of the leading names in the market, advising international clients on the Jersey law elements of a wide range of finance transactions. You can expect lots of involvement and responsibility from the outset with plenty of client contact, making it ideal for an ambitious lawyer who is looking to combine high-end professional experience with a lifestyle that is simply unattainable in the city.
The role is likely to suit lawyers with up to 2 years’ pqe in a relevant practice area (such as banking and finance, corporate finance, real estate finance). 2021 NQ’s are also encouraged to apply and will need strong academics, and at least one banking and finance seat.
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.
