Legal Jobs in Bermuda

Long-established as an international hub for financial services, Bermuda is particularly noted as the jurisdiction of choice for the insurance sector and a major centre for investment funds and trusts. Its legal sector has developed well in recent years with several new entrants to the market creating opportunities outside of the traditional ‘big two’. Work here is cross-border, high-value, complex and challenging, and lawyers tend to thrive in the smaller teams with increased client contact.

Located in the Atlantic, 600 miles off the North Carolina coast, Bermuda is both a long way from anywhere and at the same time, surprisingly well connected. Much of the US eastern seaboard is within a couple of hours’ flight making for an easy weekend break. Not that you will be in any rush to leave. It regularly tops lists of the most desirable places in the world to live and with its mild year-round climate, idyllic beaches, luxury resorts and bags of history, it’s not hard to see why.

There is a steady demand for Commonwealth qualified lawyers (typically UK, Australian, New Zealand or Canadian qualified) with the minimum three years’ pqe, required for a work-permit. You are likely to have credentials in a good onshore/international firm with experience in Corporate, Funds, Insurance (contentious or non-contentious), Commercial Litigation, or Trusts.

Our international team has a long history of helping lawyers to find legal jobs in Bermuda. It is a small market which benefits from a certain type of approach. It is not a place to mass market your CV. Whether you are at the beginning of the process and looking for a bit of information, or whether you are ready to go with your application, contact Jason or Charlotte:

Testimonials

Associate, Cayman Islands

"Jason really is outstanding.  He helped place me in the perfect firm for me; his reading of the firm's culture and fit was second to none.  His in-depth and hands on knowledge of the offshore legal world was a welcome support and he was responsive and engaging throughout - no question was too small (or daft!).  He made the move offshore a genuine pleasure and helped manage a really smooth transition and process, from initially being put forward for the role to starting.  I will be recommending Jason to anyone considering a move offshore - he's the "go to" in my eyes." - Associate, Cayman Islands

Associate, UAE

"Jason's genuine, honest and informed approach ensured that my recent international placement was seamless, stress free, and most importantly a good fit for both myself, my family and the firm. With open lines of communication Jason provided honest advice and kept me fully informed of the recruitment progress at all times. I cannot recommend Jason highly enough." - Associate, UAE

Associate, Guernsey

"Jason was incredibly helpful, reliable and proactive.  He put so much thought into enhancing my application and assisting with interview preparation.  He’d promptly seek feedback to share with me as soon as he could, which was very welcome after an interview!  I can’t recommend him and his team enough if you’re looking for a new role as their wealth of experience places you in safe hands." - Associate, Guernsey
