Legal Jobs in Jersey

Few locations in the world compare to Jersey when it comes to finding a compromise between high-quality international legal work and a sensible, sustainable work-life balance. This is a place where lawyers at elite offshore law firms routinely handle complex and challenging cross-border work without having to put their social life on permanent hold.

For all but the most metropolitan of lawyers, island living has plenty to recommend it. Cyclists will love the miles of ‘Green Lanes’ which criss-cross the island with speed limits of 15mph, whilst those looking to get out on the water can try surfing, kayaking, paddle-boarding or sailing. As a tourism hub and a home to many ‘ex-pats’, there is a buzzing social scene with plenty of opportunities for an afterwork drink at a local bar or a bite to eat in a beach side restaurant. All within an hour of London.

Established as a major international financial centre for over fifty years, Jersey remains at the forefront of the offshore financial services sector. Virtually every large offshore firm is present here and demand for corporate, finance, funds, dispute resolution, trusts and real estate lawyers is consistently strong at all levels of experience from newly qualified to Partner.

As specialists in the offshore sector since 2000, the Origin Legal international team is uniquely placed to help you explore a move to Jersey. You can expect unbiased and informed advice on the market and how to approach it. We can assist with every step from tailoring your resume to interview preparation and negotiating offers. Our network spans every major firm on the island. To find out more about a move offshore or to discuss legal jobs in the Channel Islands, please get in touch with Jason or Charlotte.
