England & Wales qualified lawyer with high-value commercial litigation/dispute resolution experience. Lucrative low-tax package. British Virgin Islands.

This prominent offshore law firm is seeking a mid-level commercial litigation lawyer for its growing team in the British Virgin Islands. This is an opportunity to take on a role that will enhance your professional experience through hands-on exposure to high-value, cross-border disputes, while at the same time affording you a change of lifestyle that most UK lawyers can only dream of.

Taking on a broad practice spanning the entire spectrum of commercial and trusts litigation, this role will be ideal for someone who enjoys a fast-paced and varied workload. You are likely to have around two to six years’ post-qualification experience gained in a good commercial litigation practice, and strong technical and client-facing skills are essential. Admission in England & Wales is required for work permit reasons.

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.


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.
