Podcast: Live Your Dream featuring Michael Kim, co-founder Kobre & Kim
Celina Lee’s podcast series provides a window into the unique journeys and experiences of individuals from a wide variety of professions. One of the interviewees for her podcast is Michael Kim, co-founder of Kobre & Kim LLP.
Michael Kim is the co-founder of the law firm, Kobre & Kim. Michael and his partner, Steven Kobre, met when they both worked as Assistant U.S. Attorneys in Manhattan while working on a securities case, which ultimately became the movie, the Boiler Room. They started their law firm at Steven’s apartment kitchen in 2003 and grew it into a global law firm with 10 offices worldwide and over 300 employees. Michael talks about why he decided to start the law firm even though 99% of the people he talked to said it was a terrible idea, and what he has learned about setting and achieving goals, building authentic relationships, and how to make yourself happy.
We congratulate AABANY member Michael Kim for being interviewed by Celina Lee on her podcast. We are also honored to count Kobre & Kim among AABANY’s sponsors.
