Job Description

Trusts/Private Client Lawyer – top-tier offshore work for a leading offshore law firm – Can be based London or Guernsey.

This leading offshore law firm is looking for an experienced trust and wealth management lawyer to join its Guernsey team, operating either from the island or from its well-established London office. You will be advising HNW/UHNW private clients, family offices, trust companies and other intermediaries on some of the most innovative and interesting private wealth management work in the world. You can expect to play an active role in the firm’s strong business development and client management initiatives and will be supported in developing your own network of client contacts making it an ideal platform for longer term progression.

You are likely to have at least 5 years’ experience of advising on high-value trust and private wealth management matters. Experience with an offshore firm would be useful but is not essential and lawyers from good UK firms seeking the first step into the offshore sector are welcome to apply. The role offers an excellent salary and bonus structure, good benefits and, if appropriate, a relocation package.

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 negotiable. Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with licenses (where applicable) and relocation, including temporary accommodation on arrival.
