This large offshore law firm is undergoing a period of sustained growth across its international network. In the Cayman Islands this has created an opportunity for an experienced corporate/funds lawyer to significantly enhance their career while dramatically changing their life.
Joining at Senior Associate or for the right person Counsel level, you will take a lead role on a variety of high-value corporate/funds transactions, advising on the Cayman law elements of some of the biggest transactions in the offshore world. You will work closely with Partners on the firm’s ongoing business development and client management efforts, as well as contributing to the training and development of more junior Associates in the team. The firm has a clear route to progression and will provide the platform, and the tools you need, to equip yourself well to capitalise on the opportunities that arise.
The Cayman Islands
A world-class international financial centre, Grand Cayman offers lawyers the opportunity to do high-quality and complex work that compares favourably with that in a leading onshore law firm. Outside of work, the climate lends itself to an outdoors lifestyle whether that be diving, sailing, relaxing on the beach or enjoying a bite to eat at a waterfront restaurant. Life here is good; rarely does anyone regret making the move.
Interviews will take place by videoconference with start dates typically around 4-6 months later (depending on your notice period). Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with visas and relocation.
