CML has been placing lawyers for over 15 years and we have direct links with all the leading trust & private client lawyers in all major offshore financial centers. If you are looking to take your career offshore or make a strategic career move, our team can help.
Offshore jurisdictions, such as The Cayman Islands, are considered first-class trust jurisdictions. Not only are the legal frameworks as strong and reliable as you will find anywhere offshore, but the independence of the judiciary alongside the well-developed and respected court system, advisers, managers, and trustees who practice here make them very robust and market-leading trust jurisdictions.
Quality of Work
Your role as an offshore Trust & Private Client lawyer will be a varied and interesting position. Typically, you will manage more matters offshore than onshore and your workload will mainly involve advising trust companies and UHNW/HNW individuals on the setting up and maintenance of trust structures. Frequent business travel is also another selling point given that your clients will be located all over the world.
What Experience Are Employers Looking For?
Most offshore trust and private client lawyers have trained and qualified at leading trust practices in the UK, Jersey, Guernsey, Australia, or New Zealand. The drafting of bespoke trust structures is a prerequisite as well as the ability to demonstrate good BD acumen at interview.
