Most recently the co-leader of Pillsbury’s Investment Funds and Investment Management team in Washington, D.C., Kim represents a wide array of clients in sophisticated regulatory and transactional matters. From fund sponsors, general partners and investment advisers to institutional investors, family offices and high-net-worth individual investors, clients seek Kim’s counsel on issues relating to structuring, drafting and negotiating investment terms, managing advisory relationships and other matters arising during the life cycle of alternative investments.
