Trusts/Private Client Lawyer - Opportunity for a junior trust and private wealth lawyer to join a premier offshore law firm in the Channel Islands. Excellent prospects. Based Guernsey.

An opening exists for a junior lawyer to join a highly respected team advising private clients, family offices, trust companies and other intermediaries on some of the most innovative and interesting private wealth management work in the world. This is a broad-reaching role that will offer some exposure to contentious as well as non-contentious matters, making it the ideal platform for an ambitious lawyer. The scope for career development really is excellent.

The role is likely to suit someone with strong academics and up to two years’ relevant experience from a good UK/offshore/international practice. You can expect an attractive low-tax salary and a full benefits and relocation package.

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.

Process

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.
