Corporate NQ Lawyer – Channel Islands

This offshore ‘magic circle’ firm is keen to speak with newly qualified lawyers from City or leading national/regional firms who wish to specialise in high-value cross border corporate work.  Joining a leading team you will learn from some of the best Partners in the market whilst enjoying exposure to a wide range of work and plenty of client contact.  Culturally, it is acknowledged as a ‘nice place to work’ and despite a mid-City level salary, the work/life balance is excellent.

The Firm

Headquartered out of the Channel Islands but operating globally, this large offshore law firm has a reputation for being highly commercial and client focused in its approach. Its lawyers are encouraged to be client facing from day one and the firm supports career progression, on merit, at every level.  The strength of its client base ensures a constant flow of high-quality work and it looks for people with credentials from the leading UK national, City/International or Australian law firms. Lawyers consider it to be a nice place to work and its salaries are tax-efficient and competitive.

About the Channel Islands

Located within an hour of London, Jersey and Guernsey are world-class financial centres that offer City calibre work combined with a coastal lifestyle that is worlds apart.  They each house offices of almost every major offshore practice, fielding teams of largely ex-City/International firm lawyers advising on high-value and complex matters. The firms encourage a commercial, client focused approach and most will find that the levels of involvement and responsibility compare favourably with a big onshore outfit. 

Opportunities for career progression right through to Partnership are excellent.  Outside of the office, a good work/life balance allows ample time to enjoy the attractions whether it is coastal walks or a local restaurant, a round of golf or learning to surf.  It is an evocative mix of professional challenge and personal fulfilment that many lawyers find hard to walk away from but should you decide to move on, experience here will be marketable around the world.  To find out more please contact us for a copy of our Guide to Living and Working in the Channel Islands.
