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

Candidate

"I couldn't recommend Jason highly enough. He has his finger on the pulse of the offshore legal world and is very professional to work with. He is also very responsive and knowledgeable on the practicalities of moving offshore, especially from London. Great to work with."

Associate, Guernsey

"Whilst searching for an NQ role, I came across multiple recruitment consultants who were all too willing to push me in to roles that were not suited to me. Jason took the time to truly understand my requirements, listened to my concerns, and importantly, gave frank and honest advice. He went over and above to help me secure my dream job and I genuinely cannot recommend him highly enough." - Associate, Guernsey

Candidate

"Jason was an excellent recruitment consultant.  I reached out to Origin a few months ago with regards to potentially moving to the Channel Islands from the Isle of Man for a NQ corporate position, and with Jason's help and guidance I am now writing this recommendation from my new office in Jersey!  He was very supportive and attentive at every stage of the recruitment process, which was very much appreciated as it was my first job move.  I couldn't recommend Jason/ Origin enough if you are looking to change job, especially if it involves moving to a different jurisdiction as he really helped me prepare for every part of the move."
