Message from our Managing Partner

Ryutaro Nakayama
Managing Partner

At Nishimura & Asahi we welcome bright and motivated individuals who wish to progress their careers in an environment that values diversity, professionalism and high ambition.

Since opening our first office outside Japan ten years ago, we have grown to over 1,700 professionals and staff working in close collaboration across 20 locations around the world. We expect further expansion as we deliver on our strategic goal to be a top-tier international firm.

Key to our approach is developing a deep understanding of the business and surrounding environment in which our clients operate, and a clear awareness of our clients’ core values and objectives. Our services are never off the shelf but are tailored closely to reflect that understanding and awareness so as to deliver practical and comprehensive solutions.

Underpinning everything we do is our fundamental mission, which is to realize an affluent and fair society based upon the rule of law. Our firm’s recent accolades, awards and rankings suggest that we are on the right track. If you share our strategic goal and fundamental mission, we hope that you will want to join us on our journey and we look forward to hearing from you.

Who we look for

Timothy Jeffares
Global Development Director

Our firm takes great pride in the diversity of its members and values the many different perspectives they bring to help the firm deliver its fundamental mission and its strategic goal of being a top-tier international firm. We encourage our members through their everyday activities to live by the values that we espouse and have shared internally. Those things, together, help us act with a common purpose.

We believe that if you have the following characteristics then you are likely to find our firm a rewarding and fulfilling place to work: an appreciation and awareness of the views of others, especially when from different cultural backgrounds; a willingness to face new challenges; the energy and perseverance to find solutions to problems; a willingness to speak up and express an opinion; and above all, a desire to support and collaborate with colleagues.

Through internal training programs we encourage and support our members to make the most of their talents – but equally, at the end of the day, we like people who bring their own motivation to learn and constantly improve.
