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

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

"I couldn't recommend Jason highly enough. He has his finger on the pulse of the offshore legal world and is very professional to work with. He is also very responsive and knowledgeable on the practicalities of moving offshore, especially from London. Great to work with."

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
