Banking & Finance Lawyer - Opportunity to do high-value and complex offshore banking and finance work as part of a friendly, successful, and ambitious team. Excellent tax-free salary, strong career prospects.

New opening for an experienced Banking and Finance lawyer to join the Cayman Islands office of one of the world’s leading offshore law firms. This is an ideal role for someone who wishes to continue doing high-level and challenging cross-border work, but who is at the same time craving a change of scene from the typical big law firm environment. You will take on a broad practice spanning the full range of offshore banking and finance work, with plenty of opportunities to take a lead in both transaction management and business development. It will likely suit someone who is technically strong and who enjoys a fast-paced and varied, client-facing role.

The successful candidate will be UK/Commonwealth admitted with at least 4.5 years’ post-qualification experience gained in a top City or equivalent international law firm. Whilst a general banking and finance background is ideal, lawyers with a specialism in areas such as structured finance, acquisition finance, leveraged finance, funds finance, asset finance, or debt capital markets work are equally encouraged to get in touch.  

As well as being a sound career move that offers excellent prospects for development in Cayman or across the firm’s international network, this is also a move that has the potential to change your life. Island living may not be for everyone but if you are currently city-based and looking for a more relaxed existence outside of the office, this could tick all the boxes. The climate lends itself to an outdoor lifestyle that is a far cry from the UK and Cayman has a reputation for being a sociable place where it is easy to settle. The most common regret for lawyers relocating to Cayman…“why didn’t I do this sooner?”

Interviews are taking place over videoconference with start dates likely to be mid/Q3 2021.
