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

"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, Guernsey

"Jason was incredibly helpful, reliable and proactive.  He put so much thought into enhancing my application and assisting with interview preparation.  He’d promptly seek feedback to share with me as soon as he could, which was very welcome after an interview!  I can’t recommend him and his team enough if you’re looking for a new role as their wealth of experience places you in safe hands." - Associate, Guernsey

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."
