Funds/Corporate Lawyer – Senior Counsel level opportunity to join a leading offshore law firm, advising on a broad practice of high-value Corporate and Investment Funds work. Jersey
Opportunities to enjoy the best of both worlds are rare in top-level transactional law. The bigger the firm, the better the work, the less time you are likely to have for a life away from the office. But this is different.
Not the work, though. That will be just as complex, challenging, and rewarding as that you have been exposed to in your career to date. In fact, the fast turnover and wide variety of matters you are involved in, combined with the level of autonomy that comes as standard in a smaller team, might well make this a step up. You will certainly need all your technical skills and experience to prosper here.
What is notable is the opportunity for career progression. Already acclaimed, this team is developing fast, pursuing a growth strategy that allows them to make an appointment at Senior Counsel level but with eyes firmly fixed on Partnership in the short to medium term. It is not every day an opportunity like this comes up.
Outside of work, this is a world apart from a daily slog into the city. Jersey offers an exceptional coastal lifestyle with nowhere more than a few minutes from one of the island’s beautiful beaches. It is an easy place to settle – friendly, sociable, and welcoming to ex-pats. It’s a slower pace of life, so if you love the buzz of the city you may need to think twice but if you enjoy sport, fancy learning to surf, or just like the idea of a weekend walk along the coast path, you’ll love it here.
If this all sounds too good to be true, get in touch and we would be happy to talk it through in more detail. You are likely to have at least 8 years’ post-qualification experience of high-value corporate or investment funds work gained with a major City/international firm or with another leading offshore practice.
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.
