Job Description

This prestigious offshore law firm fields one of the leading investment funds teams in what is one of the world’s premier markets for asset management work. For an ambitious funds lawyer, this could offer that heady combination of an outstanding career move with serious lifestyle benefits.

The work is of the highest quality. Advising high-end international clients (asset managers, major investors, financial services groups) you will have a hands-on role in some of the most innovative and technically challenging matters in the market. The team covers the entire life cycle from formation and regulation through to restructurings and terminations, across a wide spectrum of fund types/classes. Once settled, you will be encouraged to get involved in all aspects of business development and client relationship management, making it ideal for someone who wants to fast-track their progression both in terms of skill set and building their network. Opportunities to progress, in this most funds-centric of markets, are outstanding.

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.


Highly attractive tax-free salary (expected to be in the range of USD $160k- $210k depending on experience). Comprehensive benefits, bonus, and relocation package (flights + temporary accommodation on arrival + expenses allowance)


To secure a work permit for the Cayman Islands you will need to be admitted in the UK or an equivalent Commonwealth jurisdiction (such as Australia, New Zealand or Canada) and have at least three years’ post-qualification experience (by the time you relocate). Investment funds expertise gained with a leading UK/International firm would be an advantage, but corporate lawyers with some exposure to the sector and a desire to specialise, are encouraged to get in touch.
