Commercial Litigation Lawyer - Barrister or Solicitor – high-value cross-border work – British Virgin Islands

This role offers a junior/mid-level lawyer the opportunity to join a small, high-performing team advising on a wide range of complex cross-border commercial and financial services disputes. You will be doing challenging and interesting work in a collegiate environment, alongside some of the most respected senior lawyers in the market. There will be every opportunity to take on responsibility and no shortage of client contact, ideal for an ambitious lawyer who is keen to build their skills and experience more quickly than might be possible in a large onshore practice.

You will need at least two years’ relevant experience from a good law firm or chambers. Admission in England & Wales is essential for work permit reasons.

British Virgin Islands

Life in Tortola, BVI, is about as far from a city existence as a lawyer can get whilst maintaining a top-level international legal practice. This is a place where you will be working alongside elite lawyers on huge, complex matters for clients all over the world, but walk out of the office door and you are in one of the most idyllic spots in the Caribbean. Ex-pats who love it here, love the sociable outdoor lifestyle, the climate and the sense of being in a remote location without compromising one iota on their career. It is a paradise for divers, sailors, and indeed for anyone who really wants to switch off completely when the working day is done.

Process

Interviews will take place by videoconference with start dates typically four to six months later. Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with visas and relocation, including temporary accommodation and car hire on arrival.
