Ann Kim strategically draws upon her wealth of knowledge from her past experience working as a federal prosecutor and SEC enforcement division senior counsel to advise clients and provide insight on how to navigate civil regulatory and criminal government probes.

During her five years at the U.S. Attorney's Office and seven years at the SEC, Ann investigated and prosecuted numerous high-profile fraudulent schemes in parallel DOJ/SEC actions, including violations of federal securities laws, fraudulent investment schemes by broker-dealers and investment advisors, health care fraud, violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and insider trading cases that involved Fortune 500 companies.

Ann represents clients from the earliest stages of an investigation through trial during criminal and civil regulatory matters, and handles complex civil business litigation. Ann works with clients to help them maximize the use of technology to streamline the review process of the vast amount of data involved in litigation and investigations today, including utilizing AI. 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.

Before joining the government, Ann spent six years as an associate and counsel at a multinational law firm.
