Legal Jobs in the BVI

The emergence of the BVI as a globally significant financial centre has been built on its position as the offshore jurisdiction of choice for China and the world’s other fast-growth markets. A move here promises a truly international workload and will put you in direct contact with some of the biggest and best clients in the world. Few locations offer quite this level of exposure, and the potential for career development that comes with it.

Out of hours, you will be in a place that many consider to be the pick of the Caribbean. Put ‘Tortola’ in your search engine and the pictures speak a thousand words. This is every bit the idyllic island scene. White sand beaches with aquamarine seas fringe a mountainous interior and offer some of the best conditions in the world for diving, sailing, or sipping a cocktail in a beachside bar.

The fast growth of the BVI economy has been accompanied by the expansion of its legal sector and so what remains a relatively small market, produces an impressive level of ongoing demand for high-quality insolvency, dispute resolution, corporate, finance and trust lawyers. Whilst work permit rules are potentially changing, as it stands opportunities exist from NQ level upwards for lawyers admitted in England & Wales.

A move like this demands proper thought. From your initial research through to signing the contract and beyond, you will have questions. The international team at Origin Legal has unrivalled experience of answering them. We have the market knowledge to advise you who to approach, how to approach them and when to do it. There are a limited number of firms here, so if you’re serious about exploring legal jobs in the BVI, you need to get it right first time. Contact Jason or Charlotte at:

Testimonials

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

Candidate

"Jason is by far the best recruiter I have ever worked with and his key strength is that he is genuinely open and honest with candidates. I've worked with recruiters before who I felt were willing to push me into roles that weren't suited to me and Jason stood out because I trusted his advice completely. Thanks to Jason I was able to secure a great position in the Cayman Islands and I haven't looked back since!"

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."
