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