Opening for a mid-level banking and finance lawyer to join the Cayman office of an offshore heavyweight. Outstanding cross-border work. High tax-free salary.

This is the ideal role for a City or equivalent finance lawyer who wants to handle high-value and complex international work, but who likes the idea of a change of environment outside of the office. You will join an outstanding team that houses some of the leading finance lawyers in the offshore world, most of who came up through the elite onshore law firm sector. You will enjoy plenty of client contact from the outset and as you become accustomed to offshore practice, you will find yourself taking on an increasing level of responsibility. It is challenging, interesting work that offers the scope for you to develop your own skills and really progress your career.  

The successful candidate will be UK/Commonwealth admitted with 3 – 7 years’ post-qualification experience gained in a top City or equivalent international law firm. Some experience of funds finance would be useful, but it is certainly not a requirement, and lawyers with a general banking and finance background will be of equal interest.  

The Cayman Islands

A world-class international financial centre, Grand Cayman offers lawyers the opportunity to do high-quality and complex work that compares favourably with that in a leading onshore law firm. Teams tend to be smaller, so responsibility and client contact come as standard, with many ex-pat lawyers citing the unique working environment and culture as a significant advantage. Outside of work, the climate lends itself to an outdoors lifestyle whether that be diving, sailing, relaxing on the beach or enjoying a bite to eat at a waterfront restaurant. Life here is good; rarely does anyone regret making the move.


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.
