Foreign Qualified Lawyers

Leverage is currently recruiting for several leading law firms in Japan. Our clients include boutique law firms, regional second-tier firms, and major tier-1 international and domestic law firms. We are always interested in meeting qualified bilingual (JPN/ENG) attorneys to introduce new job opportunities in private practice. 

On behalf of our law firm clients, we are currently looking for those with experience in the following areas:
  • Finance
  • Capital Markets
  • General Corporate M&A
  • Intellectual Property
  • Litigation
  • Insolvency
  • IT
  • International Trade
  • Anti-Trust
  • Project Finance
  • Infrastructure, Energy, LNG

Required Years of Experience: While most of our clients would like to see candidates with more than 3 years of experience, there are opportunities for attorneys with less experience. On the other hand, we are very interested in meeting partner-level candidates from law firms with more than 1 year experience as partner. For qualified partner level candidates, we can introduce job opportunities with annual compensation ranging from 50-250 MJPY.

In addition to private practice opportunities, we can also introduce Tokyo-based in-house opportunities with multinational corporations and global financial institutions.
