NQ/Junior Commercial Litigation/Dispute Resolution lawyer – Large offshore firm - Guernsey

This leading offshore practice advises an impressive international client base on the Guernsey law aspects of high-value cross-border disputes. It is looking for a junior-level lawyer who is keen to get involved in a broad range of contentious work spanning mainstream commercial/contractual disputes, specialist banking and financial services disputes, insolvency, fraud, and asset tracing. You will enjoy plenty of client contact and opportunities to take on responsibility from the outset, making this an ideal role for an ambitious, career-minded lawyer.

It is likely to suit someone in the NQ to 2 years’ pqe range (and NQ’s should have at least one seat in high-value commercial litigation). Good academics and a background in a respected UK/equivalent commercial law firm, or with another offshore firm, are essential.

The Channel Islands

For a city-based lawyer who thrives on big-ticket work but craves an escape from the rat race, few places compete with the Channel Islands, home to two of the world’s premier offshore financial centres. Jersey and Guernsey have strong and highly competitive legal sectors, housing teams that number many alumni of the leading London or international outfits amongst their ranks. They do complex blue-chip work, in a nice environment without the trappings of a big law firm culture. Work-life balance tends to be good, leaving plenty of time to enjoy what is an enviable coastal lifestyle and London is only an hour away making it easy to get that city fix when (or if) you need it.


Interviews will take place by videoconference with start dates negotiable. Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with licenses (where applicable) and relocation, including temporary accommodation on arrival.
