This international law firm has an outstanding reputation built on its advice in some of the most complex and high-value disputes in the market. Its Cayman-based team frequently collaborates with colleagues overseas, focusing on cross-border commercial and insolvency disputes, often relating to the banking and financial services sector. This is a demanding role that will encompass every stage of a dispute up to and including trial work, and it will suit someone who is technically strong with outstanding client communication skills, and who has the confidence and experience to take a lead in pressurised situations. In return, you will benefit from some wonderful professional exposure whilst enjoying a Caribbean lifestyle in your downtime.

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. 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.

Process

Interviews will take place by videoconference with start dates typically around 4-6 months later (depending on your notice period). Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with visas and relocation. 

Package

Highly attractive tax-free salary dependent on experience. Comprehensive benefits, bonus, and relocation package (flights + temporary accommodation on arrival + expenses allowance)

Requirements

To secure a work permit for the Cayman Islands you will need to be admitted as a Barrister or Solicitor in the UK or an equivalent Commonwealth jurisdiction (such as Australia, New Zealand or Canada). This role is expected to suit someone with at least 5 years’ relevant PQE of highly complex international litigation, gained with a major onshore or offshore law firm. Cayman experience would be valuable but is not essential.

Origin Legal International

Our team has 25 years’ experience of helping lawyers to make international and offshore moves. If you would like to find out more about this role or chat about an overseas move in general, please get in touch.
