Corporate Lawyer – Associate/Senior Associate - Major offshore law firm - Jersey

As the offshore sector continues to go from strength to strength, this leading firm is expanding globally, and nowhere more so than in Jersey. Despite already fielding an impressive corporate team, including some of the leading Partners on the island, there is plenty of room for growth, making this an ideal opportunity for someone seeking a genuine career move.

The work itself will be high-quality, high-value and complex, and will involve advising on the Jersey law elements of some of the biggest corporate matters in the market. It will suit someone who is technically strong and commercially astute, and who enjoys the client-facing side of the business. There will be no shortage of opportunities to take on responsibility, perfect for someone who wants to really show what they are capable of.  

You will be UK/Commonwealth qualified and likely to have at least 3 years’ relevant experience gained with a top-tier City/similar law firm.  

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 typically three months later, depending on notice period. Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with licenses (where applicable) and relocation, including temporary accommodation on arrival.
