HOUSTON – The Kim Law Firm has earned selection to the 2019 list of Best Law Firms for commercial litigation by U.S. News & World Report and The Best Lawyers in America, a widely respected guide to legal services.
Founded by nationally recognized trial lawyer John H. Kim, the firm has a top-tier ranking in the Houston metropolitan area. Earning this distinction involves a rigorous process that includes evaluations from other lawyers and feedback from clients on everything from a firm’s ability to understand a client’s business to cost-effectiveness and responsiveness.
“We have worked with John Kim and his team on four trial matters,” said the executive of an oil company. “Two went to verdict (one favorable and one reversed and rendered in our favor on appeal) and two settled very favorable to us on the eve of trial. Outstanding lawyer and team.”
Another client called Mr. Kim “truly responsive” and “a true gentleman and trusted advisor.” A third client praised the Kim Law Firm team, noting, “They have an incredible ability to understand complex litigation and the issues as it related to us as clients.”
Mr. Kim has been individually listed in The Best Lawyers in America guide since 2016. He also was recently recognized as a 2019 Litigation Star by Benchmark Litigation, a guide to top trial lawyers, the seventh consecutive year he has been so honored. Earlier this year, he was named 2018 Texas Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Texas chapters of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA). Mr. Kim also is ranked this year among the Top 100 Texas attorneys selected by Thomson Reuters’ Super Lawyers magazine.
Mr. Kim and The Kim Law Firm represent defendants and plaintiffs in oil & gas litigation, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, securities litigation, claims of tortious interference and trade secret actions. The Kim Law Firm has recovered more than a half-billion dollars for clients directly and through counterclaims through 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, product liability and other intellectual property disputes.
