Career Clinic: Is offshore law a one-way ticket?
I am a 2PQE employment lawyer working in-house, and I have been offered an employment role at a well-respected firm in Guernsey. I have been looking for a role like this for ages, but I am concerned that while it is a great opportunity, it may be difficult to get a job back in the UK in a few years' time or if it doesn't work out. I know offshore moves are generally seen as a great career step, but is this restricted to transactional, funds or finance disciplines? Can anyone offer any advice?"
