Legal Jobs in Singapore

You really can’t go wrong as a lawyer with a leading firm in Singapore. You will be working on complex, high-value international work for impressive clients, and you will be doing it in a smaller team where you can really make your mark. Junior lawyers enjoy the high level of involvement whilst those with experience benefit from regular client contact and an opportunity to build a network. Experience here is valued worldwide.

Not that you are likely to want to leave any time soon. Singapore is many people’s pick of places to live in Asia. It has the infrastructure and facilities of a Global city without the drawbacks. It is safe, clean and it works in a way that few major cities work. Its unrivalled air connections provide travel opportunities throughout the region.

A multicultural hub for the ASEAN region, Singapore is a melting pot of history and culture which has, in little over a half century, grown from economic backwater to become one of the wealthiest states in the world. Demand for lawyers is high but so is the bar to entry. Roles exist at all levels in the elite law firms, and typically revolve around corporate, banking & finance, investment funds, construction/projects or international dispute resolution.

If you are interested in finding out more about legal jobs in Singapore, why not get in touch with the international team at Origin Legal? We have been helping lawyers to make cross-border career moves since 2000 and we offer the experience and market knowledge to make a potentially complicated relocation run smoothly. We can advise you whatever stage of the process you are at, whether starting out with your research or ready to begin making applications. Contact Jason or Charlotte at:

Testimonials

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."

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, Jersey

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