Job Description

Grand Cayman is a perfect location for an ambitious Investment Funds Lawyer who is seeking the highest quality of work but who wishes to combine it with a more relaxed lifestyle outside of work. This particular firm is among the leaders in the global offshore market and it fields a highly impressive funds team, most of whom joined from the top onshore practices. Moving here will be no step down. Your professional life will be fast-paced and challenging, with all the rewards you would expect in a big City firm. It is technically complex work, spanning the entire funds remit, but also requires strong communication skills as you will be client facing on a daily basis. Opportunities to get involved in business development and to begin building your personal contact book will be excellent – ideal for someone with one eye on future Partnership.

Outside of work, you have the Caribbean on your doorstep. Lots of lawyers live near the office in George Town or a short drive away in Seven Mile Beach so no long commutes here. The prospects for career development are good and such is the firm’s profile that you would have no problem moving back home or to other jurisdictions. The question that many Cayman lawyers would ask is ‘why you would want to?’

CRITERIA:           

  • UK/Commonwealth admission.
  • Applications invited from lawyers with 4.5 to 7 years’ pqe;
  • City/International firm or equivalent investment funds experience (offshore experience is not a requirement).
  • Excellent technical and communication skills with the adaptability to take on a diverse practice.

LOCATION:        

A pre-eminent global financial centre located just an hour from Miami, Grand Cayman offers you a Caribbean lifestyle with no compromise on quality of work, career progression or earning potential. In the office, you will advise international clients on high-value and complex matters, earning a lucrative tax-free salary. After hours, you live in a place that people spend thousands to visit. You can swim with sea turtles, stingrays or starfish, dive some of the world’s most interesting sites, socialise with friends in one of the many beachfront bars or restaurants, or just relax on the pristine sands of Seven Mile Beach. Check out our Cayman Guide for more information.

SALARY:              

Highly attractive tax-free salary + benefits + relocation.

DETAILS:

Interviews take place via videoconference for start dates typically between four and six months from application (depending on your notice period). Speak to Jason Horobin or Charlotte Hooper at Origin Legal for more information about this and similar international roles.
