Kobre & Kim is an international law firm. Founded in 2003 by Michael Kim and Steven Kobre, former United States Department of Justice prosecutors, Kobre & Kim is an Am Law 200 law firm focused on disputes and investigations.[6][7]

The firm has an unorthodox business model focused on offering clients service products so that the firm emphasizes its products over its lawyers, and avoiding repeat clients to minimize conflicts.[8][9] The firm serves mainly as special conflicts counsel in complex international disputes, relying on referrals from other law firms and direct approachs from clients.[10]

Some of the firm's practice focuses include government enforcement defense, internal investigations, asset tracing and international judgment enforcement, insolvency and debtor-creditor disputes, and other civil disputes.[11]

History[edit]

In 2005, Kobre & Kim was the subject of a New York Times article on the law firm taking a company retreat to a shooting range.

In 2018, the firm set up a $30 million litigation fund in Israel for tech companies, working with litigation funder Bentham IMF.[12]

Locations[edit]

The firm has offices in 15 locations including New York, Buenos Aires, Delaware, Miami, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Hong Kong, Seoul, Shanghai, London, Tel Aviv, the British Virgin Islands, and the Cayman Islands.[13]
