Whether dealing with securities investigations or the thorniest of white collar matters, Ann Kim helps clients navigate what can be some of the most challenging legal issues for a company.

Ann represents clients from the earliest stages of an investigation through trial during criminal and civil regulatory matters and handles complex civil business litigation. Moreover, she leverages her legal acumen and trial experience to advise clients across various industries, including public companies, health care organizations, financial institutions, and investment funds.

With over 12 years of experience working in the federal government, Ann strategically draws upon her wealth of knowledge to advise clients and provide insight on how to navigate a government investigation. She spent the last five years in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Central District of California and, prior to that, seven years as a senior counsel in the Enforcement Division of the Securities and Exchange Commission's Los Angeles Regional Office. While at the U.S. Attorney's Office and the SEC, Ann investigated and litigated high-profile securities matters and violations of federal securities laws, including fraudulent investment schemes, violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and insider trading cases that involved Fortune 500 companies. Before joining the government, Ann spent six years as an associate and counsel at a multinational law firm.

Ann is fluent in Korean and has close ties to the Korean community in the greater Los Angeles area.
