Job Ref JMH.GY1341
Salary Negotiable, Depending On Experience
Experience Level NQ - 1 YRS PQE2- 5 YRS PQE
Practice Area Private Client
An opening exists for an ambitious trust lawyer to join a highly respected team advising private clients, family offices, trust companies and other intermediaries on some of the most innovative and interesting private wealth management work in the world. This is a broad-reaching role that will focus on non-contentious work but also see you supporting colleagues in litigation when contentious matters arise, making it the ideal platform for someone looking to really establish themselves as an expert in the field. The scope for career development is excellent.
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.
You will need strong credentials from a good UK/offshore/international, trusts/private wealth practice. You will have at least 1 years’ pqe but more senior applications are most welcome (particularly from lawyers with experience of advising high-net-worth private clients on complex wealth management structures). Previous experience of working with international clients and/or advising on offshore trusts would be an asset but is not essential. You will be admitted in the UK or an equivalent Commonwealth jurisdiction.
Good salary (negotiable, depending on experience) with reduced tax rate (20%). Comprehensive benefits, bonus, and relocation package (flights + temporary accommodation on arrival + expenses allowance).
