Investment Funds Lawyers – top-tier offshore law firm – high-quality work – London level low-tax salary.
This large offshore law firm has a reach that spans multiple jurisdictions worldwide. Its Jersey office ranks among the market leaders across its core practice areas, including investment funds where it fields an impressive team that advises on much of the biggest and best work in the jurisdiction. As part of its ongoing growth plans, it is looking to strengthen its Jersey-based Investment Funds practice and is keen to speak with mid-level lawyers, likely to be in the 2 to 5 years’ pqe range. You will have experience with a good UK City/top tier regional firm, ideally including exposure to funds, although corporate lawyers with a genuine interest in specialising in this area should also apply.
The firm encourages lawyers at all levels to take on responsibility and to be client facing making it a strong move for someone who is ambitious and looking to fast-track their development. In the longer term, opportunities for progression through the ranks are good, whether in the Channel Islands or further afield. You can also expect a competitive ‘London level’ low-tax salary, a full benefits and relocation package, and a work-life balance which is hard to find onshore.
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.
