This elite offshore law firm is looking for an experienced investment funds/asset management lawyer to join its thriving Jersey practice. For the right person, this could be the opportunity to significantly improve your lifestyle without compromising in any way on your career.
You will join a world-class team full of lawyers with backgrounds at leading City firms. It advises international clients on the offshore elements of some of the highest value, most complex and most innovative matters in the funds sector, and its lawyers enjoy substantial client contact and involvement from day one. Prospects for career progression are excellent and you will enjoy a work-life balance that affords you time to enjoy everything that an island lifestyle has to offer.
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 around 3-4 months later (depending on your notice period). Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with visas (where required) and relocation.
The role is likely to suit someone with 3-6 years’ experience of investment funds work, gained with a respected UK/equivalent law firm. You will be admitted in the UK, Ireland or in a Commonwealth jurisdiction (e.g. Australia, New Zealand, South Africa).
Good salary (negotiable, depending on experience) with reduced tax rate (20%). Comprehensive benefits, bonus, and relocation package (flights + temporary accommodation on arrival + expenses allowance).
Origin Legal International
Our team has 25 years’ experience of helping lawyers to make international and offshore moves. If you would like to find out more about this role or chat about an overseas move in general, please get in touch.
