HOUSTON – Houston trial lawyer John H. Kim is being recognized for his commercial litigation work in the 2017 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, the oldest and one of the most respected annual peer-review guides to the nation’s leading lawyers.
Mr. Kim has established a reputation in Texas and nationally as an aggressive trial lawyer with high-stakes litigation wins. Founder of The Kim Law Firm, he represents both defendants and plaintiffs, often in oil and gas disputes. This is his second year to earn placement in the Best Lawyers guide.
The publication selects its listed attorneys based on nominations from other lawyers in the same practice and geographic areas. Those already listed in Best Lawyers then review the nominees and offer their assessments, and the publication’s editors vet the nominees to ensure they are in good standing with their bar associations.
Mr. Kim focuses on complex commercial litigation and has experience in breach of contract, trademark disputes, product liability and catastrophic injury/death trials. He is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and is a past president of the Houston chapter of the elite American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA).
Mr. Kim is no stranger to professional accolades. Selected to the annual Texas Super Lawyers list each year since it was established in 2003, he also has been chosen among Houston’s Top 100 lawyers three times. He also is listed in the Benchmark Litigation guide as a Litigation Star for his accomplishments in general commercial litigation and product liability. He maintains the highest AV-Preeminent peer review rating in the national LexisNexis/Martindale-Hubbell legal directory.
Mr. Kim and his firm represent defendants and plaintiffs nationwide in cases involving oil & gas disputes, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, securities claims, tortious interference and trade secret actions. The Kim Law Firm has recovered more than a half-billion dollars for clients directly and through counterclaims backed by aggressive litigation. The firm represents entrepreneurs, business start-ups, mid-sized companies, and established national and international corporations in everything from contract and complex business disputes to insider trading allegations to product liability and intellectual property cases.
