Christopher Kim

Of Counsel

For nearly four decades, Mr. Kim has successfully litigated and tried cases to verdict resulting in over $300 million in plaintiff recoveries and billions of dollars in defendant savings. He has litigated complex civil and business cases in both State and Federal courts and has tried well over 50 jury and non-jury trials and arbitrations, earning him membership with the highly selective American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), LA Chapter. Mr. Kim has been named a California Super Lawyer nearly every year since 2007 and was selected as a Lawyer Representative to the Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference.

Mr. Kim has litigated and tried a wide variety of cases, including employment cases involving wage and hour, discrimination and harassment based claims. He has also handled unfair competition claims, securities class actions, shareholder and partnership disputes, intellectual property disputes, real property disputes, construction defect litigation, product liability, business and injury tort claims as well as consumer based claims. Mr. Kim's representation of both plaintiffs and defendants has provided him with a keen insight and perspective from both sides of the aisle.

Mr. Kim's clients have included foreign governments in U.S. based litigation matters, public and private companies of all sizes, including Fortune 500 companies, as well as partnerships and individuals of all backgrounds.

Before joining our firm, Mr. Kim co-founded Lim, Ruger, & Kim, LLP, which grew to become one of the larger minority owned firms in California. During his 30 year partnership, he practiced complex, high stakes business and other civil litigation. Prior to that, he worked at a national law firm where he defended professional malpractice claims brought against lawyers, accountants, and brokers, and handed product liability claims and other business and civil litigation.
