Fully Remote Jobs

Post by Anonymous User » Thu Sep 22, 2022 7:42 pm

Hi all,
I am a current first year associate at a big law firm doing transactional work. I want to move oversees for personal/familial reasons after a year or so is up, so I am looking for legal work that I could do fully remotely, from a few time zones away. Does this even exist so early in one's career?

So one issue with working remotely from outside the US is that if the employer is US-based, there are tax implications for them based on where their employees are located. This obviously is something firms with offices abroad have figured out, but a not all the firms allowing remote work since the pandemic are going to be prepared for/allow people to work remotely from abroad. (If you’re looking at non-firm work, I’m no help, sorry.)
