Job Description

This role offers an experienced Barrister/Solicitor Advocate the opportunity to join a high-performing offshore team. Advising international clients on a wide range of complex cross-border commercial and trust litigation, you will play an integral role in the firm’s ongoing client management and business development work, as well as taking a lead on some of the most interesting disputes in the offshore world.

This is a chance to work at an elite level in a collegiate environment alongside some of the most respected senior lawyers in the market. There will be every opportunity to take on leadership responsibilities, ideal for an ambitious lawyer who is keen to build their offshore skillset, and their network, more quickly than might be possible in the onshore sector. Prospects for career progression are excellent.

You will need at least six years’ relevant experience from a good chambers or law firm, and you will have advocacy experience commensurate with your level. Admission in England & Wales is essential.

British Virgin Islands

Life in Tortola, BVI, is about as far from a city existence as a lawyer can get whilst maintaining a top-level international legal practice. This is a place where you will be working alongside elite lawyers on huge, complex matters for clients all over the world, but walk out of the office door and you are in one of the most idyllic spots in the Caribbean. Ex-pats who love it here, love the sociable outdoor lifestyle, the climate and the sense of being in a remote location without compromising one iota on their career. It is a paradise for divers, sailors, and indeed for anyone who really wants to switch off completely when the working day is done.


Interviews will take place by videoconference with start dates typically four to six months later. Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with visas and relocation, including temporary accommodation and car hire on arrival.
