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

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!"

Senior Associate

"Jason was one of the most proactive and helpful recruiters I have dealt with. He identified a suitable position in the jurisdiction where I was considering a transfer, which I certainly would have not found on my own. He then made sure that communication with HR was continual and that the recruitment progressed." - Senior Associate, Guernsey

Associate, Jersey

"Comfortably the best recruiter I've dealt with. Straightforward, thoughtful, honest. My interests were well-looked after throughout the process." - Associate, Jersey
