Offshore Legal Jobs

The offshore team at Origin Legal are amongst the most experienced offshore legal recruiters in the world. If you are looking for lawyer jobs offshore or are just interested in finding out about the advantages and potential drawbacks of a moving offshore as a lawyer, contact Jason Horobin or check the Origin Legal website for a host of offshore legal resources.

“Will I be able to come back?” It is the question we get asked most consistently by people looking for legal jobs offshore. The answer is certainly yes, but with one caveat…people rarely want to. No longer does a lawyer moving offshore have to resolve to spending their career on a small island. Offshore lawyers can be found working out of Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Dublin and London as well as the more ‘traditional’ offshore financial centres in Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Gibraltar, Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands and Bermuda.

It is a truly international market that offers the opportunity to do world-class work in firms that are stacked full of lawyers who trained and practised at top onshore firms before taking their careers offshore.

Why? Everyone will have their own reasons but most will alight on some of these; more responsibility earlier, more client contact from the outset, technically complex and fast moving work, improved work-life balance, smaller and less hierarchical firms, better career progression, good salaries with lower (or zero) tax-bills, or lifestyle advantages outside of work.

For an up to dare list of offshore lawyer jobs or to find out more about offshore legal opportunities that may suit your experience and meet your career goals, contact Jason Horobin at Origin Legal.

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!"

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

Associate, UAE

"Jason's genuine, honest and informed approach ensured that my recent international placement was seamless, stress free, and most importantly a good fit for both myself, my family and the firm. With open lines of communication Jason provided honest advice and kept me fully informed of the recruitment progress at all times. I cannot recommend Jason highly enough." - Associate, UAE
