Trusts/Private Capital Lawyer (Senior) - Rare senior level opportunity for an experienced non-contentious trusts and private wealth management lawyer to join a premier offshore law firm in the Channel Islands. Outstanding prospects. Based Jersey.

An opening exists for an experienced 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.

Joining in a senior-level position, you will play a key role in ensuring work is executed to the highest standards and you will also be influential in the training and development of more junior colleagues. What perhaps sets this role apart though, is the opportunity to make a significant contribution to the firm’s business development strategy as it seeks to realise an ambitious growth plan. The scope for career development really is excellent.

To be considered you will need strong credentials from a good UK/offshore/international trusts/private wealth practice. It is likely that you will have at least seven years’ pqe with significant experience of advising high-net-worth private clients on complex wealth management structures. Previous experience of working with international clients and/or advising on offshore trusts would be an asset but is not 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.
