About us

Legal Intel K.K. was founded to better service the legal and business community in Tokyo. Initially specializing in corporate in-house legal recruitment, we are able to deliver better results to our clients and candidates with a strong focus on service quality, professionalism and integrity. We firmly believe that we have the expertise and know-how to introduce the best people to fill legal positions in Tokyo better than our competitors. Our market and industry knowledge, coupled with a strong knowledge of complex recruitment processes, ensures our clients and candidates are receiving expert service, advice and solutions.

Our approach

Our company is committed to delivering the best to our clients and candidates. We believe that every hiring decision impacts people, careers and companies, as well as families, and therefore we are extremely careful in our recruitment approach and activity. We provide genuine advice and support candidates to realize their ambitions of a better career while assisting our clients to find the most suitable person in the market. Our strength and experience in the legal recruitment market and our commitment to service excellence ensures the mutual success of our clients and candidates.

We dedicate our time and resources to ensure we deliver results in the shortest period of time. For our clients, we are typically able to deliver resumes with candidate approval within 48 hours of receiving a job assignment. We not only provide standard search and placement services, but are also able to tailor our style to suit individual client requirements. We offer both a traditional contingency style search service as well as a retained search for particularly urgent or confidential assignments.

Our focus is to identify the best candidate for our client and to ensure candidates received genuine advice and assessment when deciding on a potential career move. Our business is relationship driven and, unlike our competitors, we are not KPI or sales driven. What this reflects is a commitment of a trusted partner with your best interest in mind. We do not send out resumes or jobs without careful consideration but rather, we work tirelessly to build long trusting relationships with our clients and candidates, by delivering relevant and targeted information on the market. In short, we look to understand individual and company goals to add long-term value.
