Barrister/Solicitor-Advocate – major offshore law firm – British Virgin Islands

This highly respected offshore law firm advises an international client base on some of the largest disputes in the BVI market. It continues to go from strength to strength and is eager to bring in an experienced Barrister or Solicitor-Advocate to take on a practice that will span complex commercial, financial services, and insolvency litigation. Joining at Senior Associate level, you will have a lead role in managing and executing work as well as playing an integral part in the training and development of more junior colleagues. Alongside this, you will also be supported in building your network of client contacts whilst contributing to the wider business development efforts of the team. This is an opportunity to join a high-quality and ambitious team, that is recognised for its positive and collegiate culture.    

British Virgin Islands

For some, the BVI is the pick of the Caribbean. A mountainous, rain-forested 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 relaxing 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 4-6 months later. Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with visas and relocation, including temporary accommodation on arrival. 


Attractive salary with a low tax rate (c8%), comprehensive benefits, bonus, and relocation package (flights + temporary accommodation on arrival + expenses allowance).


The successful applicant will need at least three years’ relevant experience from a reputable set of chambers or alternatively a commercial law firm in which you have gained significant advocacy experience. Prior experience of handling high-value commercial cases is important and admission in the UK or BVI is essential for work-permit reasons.
