This respected offshore law firm is looking for an experienced corporate lawyer to work closely with some of the island’s leading lawyers as part of a small, collegiate team. Advising on high-value and complex cross border work, you will take on a busy practice that spans mainstream corporate including M&A, private equity and joint ventures, but which also offers exposure to banking and finance and some corporate insurance matters. It is likely to appeal to someone who relishes a varied workload, enjoys a hands-on role with plenty of responsibility, and who thrives in a client facing capacity.

For the right person this could be a rare opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds; the professional challenge, intellectual stimulation and opportunity that comes with top tier work, combined with a more balanced and culturally relaxed working environment in one of the world's most desirable locations.

Bermuda

Bermuda offers you the opportunity to live and work in one of the most sought-after locations on the planet. The island benefits from a mild year-round climate, never too cold in the winter and rarely too hot in the summer. It is famed for its picture-postcard pink sand beaches and crystal-clear ocean, but it also has plenty of history and boasts all the attractions associated with a luxury holiday destination. And if you should need a break from island life, with regular direct flights to London, New York and other parts of the US, it is particularly well connected.

Process

Interviews will take place by videoconference with a potential follow up in person in the UK. Start dates typically around 4-6 months later (depending on your notice period). Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with visas and relocation. 

Package

Highly competitive salary, low tax-rate. Benefits, bonus, and relocation package (flights + temporary accommodation on arrival + expenses allowance).

Requirements

To secure a work-permit you will need to be qualified in Bermuda, the UK or an equivalent Commonwealth jurisdiction (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa). The role requires someone with experience of leading on matters and it is anticipated will suit someone with at least 6 or 7 years’ post-qualification experience in a respected corporate law firm.

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.
