Duke and Rawson has well-established links with the world’s leading offshore law firms in their key international locations. 

We are working with a number of firms, from within this elite group, on a range of attractive opportunities for mid to senior-level UK qualified lawyers to move offshore and enjoy the personal and professional benefits of a move to this market.

On the most part, working in these jurisdictions will be tax free or low-tax, meaning that earnings can be maximised whilst working for in the offshore sector.  

In addition, the working culture is generally a world apart from City private practice, as there is no expectation to stay late every night or work over weekends.  It is known that people move offshore for the weather and lifestyle benefits and this is a culture that works for people throughout the firms’ hierarchies.

These firms are well-known to lawyers in the London market given their prevalence in high-value transactional and litigious matters where offshore law matters normally arise. 

In particular, offshore firms are looking to recruit into their offices in the following locations:

  • Caribbean (Cayman and British Virgin Islands)
  • Bermuda
  • Asia (Hong Kong and Singapore)
  • Channel Islands (Jersey and Guernsey)

Demand for City trained lawyers remains extremely high and there are opportunities in these locations for associates practising in core or specialist areas within Corporate M&A, Investment Funds, Banking and Finance, Litigation, and Insolvency. 

In addition to the financial and work/life benefits, moving offshore at this level will present exciting progression opportunities, and many lawyers end up making Partner and staying within the network permanently.  For those who envision a return to London within a shorter to medium term, the quality of experience gained will ensure a smooth transition back to a leading international onshore firm.
