Contractor Consultant Dispute Resolution Lawyer Litigation

Role Description

Appleby is one of the most highly regarded global law firms across multiple key offshore and onshore jurisdictions. Our reputation for top quality work consistently attracts an elite client base of blue-chip companies and high net worth individuals. We are looking for practitioners with the drive and ability to flourish in a highly professional, friendly and thriving global organisation.

Our Cayman Islands office is looking to appoint a panel of Consultants who are interested in flexible remote contract work to support its fast-growing Dispute Resolution team’s caseload. The Appleby Cayman Dispute Resolution team’s work and clients are of the highest quality. 

Applicants must have a minimum of six years’ post qualification experience along with strong academics and proven experience and must be able to assume responsibility for the conduct of litigation (including advocacy) in any of the following areas: major commercial litigation and, in particular, litigation involving cross-border issues, insolvency, asset tracing, and complex financial disputes. 

Applicants should be able to handle a large caseload with minimal supervision, and panel appointees will also be responsible, when it is subsequently agreed pursuant to the framework panel appointment to work in and with the team for a period on a particular matter or generally, for managing other persons working with them on their files, which will include the mentoring and training of the firm’s junior associates and articled clerks.

Excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to work autonomously are essential.

This is a rare opportunity for a flexible manner of working on some of the largest and globally recognised cases, with a high-profile firm and a friendly and committed team and will suit those with a desire to continue to practice on interesting and cutting-edge work, in a highly commercial environment, albeit in a more contained way than full-time practice – allowing the Consultant to achieve a better balance of their commitments and life priorities, while not ceasing practice entirely.
