About us

Alberto Recruitment (previously Legal Intel) 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. In 2021, we changed our name in celebration of our 10th year anniversary and to better reflect the other areas we cover for our clients.

We firmly believe that we have the expertise and know-how to introduce the best people and fill open positions in Tokyo more efficiently than our competitors. Our market and industry knowledge, coupled with a strong knowledge of complex recruitment processes, ensures our clients and candidates receive expert service, advice and solutions.

Our approach

Our company is committed to delivering the best to our clients and candidates. 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 clients to find the most suitable person in the market. Our strength and experience in the Tokyo recruitment market and our commitment to service excellence ensure 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 based on relationships 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 enduring 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.

Our path so far to Perfection

It has been a long journey to come where we are now. Here is how we started.


Bringing a vision together

The company was started with one individual with a simple vision of providing clients and candidates with a better level of service in legal recruitment.


Our 2nd expansion - Private Practice

We made our first step to growth by hiring additional members and by starting up our law firm recruitment function.


Our 3rd expansion - Financial Services

We saw additional growth and expanded to handle legal & compliance within the financial services sector.


Further growth with Accounting Recruitment Team

As part of our growth plans, we launched our accounting recruitment team. This came out of hard work, great passion for what we do and a vision to provide the same level of service to a greater number of clients and candidates.


Further growth with Administative Recruitment

We grew our operations in 2018 to handle Admin & Support function positions to further service our clients.
