Legal Jobs in Guernsey

The Bailiwick of Guernsey is the smaller of the Channel Islands, located in the English Channel near the French coast. Recognised globally as a leading offshore financial centre, Guernsey boasts a robust legal and regulatory system and an excellent reputation for providing first-class banking, fiduciary, funds, insurance and asset management services.

Guernsey is consequently home to 7 of the major international offshore law firms and a number of highly-regarded boutique firms. The firms provide advice on Guernsey law in the areas of Corporate, M&A, Banking & Finance, Investment Funds, Restructuring & Insolvency, Trusts & Private Client and Dispute Resolution.

The Channel Islands have the best climate and some of the most stunning coastline in the British Isles, making it the perfect combination of high-end international work and a lifestyle and standard of living that is hard to achieve in most major financial centres. If you are looking to swap the long-hours culture and dreaded commute often associated with life as a City lawyer for a laid back Island lifestyle, while maintaining the quality of work that you have become accustomed, this may be the perfect move.

When you combine this all with its close proximity to London and mainland Europe, GMT time-zone and high-quality work, it’s easy to see why Guernsey attracts some of the best lawyers from around the globe.

The market for offshore legal jobs in Guernsey is extremely buoyant at the moment, so if you are lawyer looking for a move, please get in touch with Jason Horobin or Charlotte Hooper in our International team.

Testimonials

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

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!"

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
