The offshore world sits right at the cutting edge of legal developments in financial services and now the fast-growing cryptocurrency and fintech sector. It makes it an ideal move for a lawyer who wants to future-proof their career whilst enjoying some varied and interesting work, a nice low-tax income, and a lifestyle that is simply unattainable onshore.
This large multi-office firm is looking for a good all-rounder from a corporate, funds/financial services, or regulatory background, to join its BVI office and work closely with colleagues on a broad range of transactional and regulatory work. It is a great opportunity to build your knowledge in some highly sought-after areas of expertise and promises excellent career development prospects.
You will need to be England & Wales qualified with at least three years’ pqe from a good commercial law firm. The role is aimed at mid to senior associate level so more experienced applicants are also encouraged to apply.
British Virgin Islands
For some, the BVI is the pick of the Caribbean. A mountainous, rainforested interior surrounded by picture-postcard bays, it is probably not far from the idyllic image that might cross your mind when you ponder whether there is ‘more to life’. It’s not for everyone. You will need to be comfortable with a slower pace, you will see its remoteness as a gift rather than an inconvenience, and you will be the sort of person who gets more out of sailing, diving, or lolling on the beach than you do from the buzz of city life. If that’s you, you will love it here. Not to mention that the work, much of it emanating out of China/Asia, is some of the most interesting and challenging in the sector.
Interviews will take place by videoconference with start dates typically around six months later. Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with visas and relocation, including temporary accommodation on arrival.
