Practice Area Litigation
Opportunity to do complex international commercial litigation in a picture-perfect Caribbean location. British Virgin Islands
Exciting opportunity for a Commercial Litigation/Dispute Resolution lawyer to join the BVI office of a well-known offshore practice. Joining a firm that has a reputation for excellence in handling contentious work, you will be part of a small team and will work closely with some of the most respected litigators in the market. You will be heavily involved from the off, advising major international clients on a wide range of BVI litigation, spanning commercial, insolvency and financial services disputes. This is hands-on and complex work that will be professionally very rewarding for the right person, whilst offering a complete change of lifestyle outside of the office.
You will be qualified in England & Wales (required for work permit reasons) or the BVI, and the role is likely to suit a Barrister or Solicitor with between three and eight years’ relevant experience gained from a good commercial law firm or barristers chambers.
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.
