Offshore "Magic Circle"

Postby Blagojevich » Sun Jan 07, 2018 11:12 am

Good morning. I was wondering if anyone has any information regarding the hiring practices of the so-called "offshore magic circle" firms (such as Appleby, Maples, Bedell, Walkers, etc.) with respect to U.S. trained attorneys. Specifically, do they hire U.S. attorneys? If so, how does one go about obtaining employment?

As far as I know, those offshore jurisdictions essentially follow British legal system so they hire UK/Australia/HK trained lawyers all the time but not US trained lawyers.

Agreed. In my experience those sweet, sweet Cayman gigs go to Commonwealth lawyers.
