The Analyst Program

“The culture we have tried to create at Kobre & Kim is one that encourages people to speak for themselves and to be vocal about their opinions. We know that the best ideas and strategies do not always come from the top down but from all directions. This is important because we are ultimately in the business of advocating for our client’s position.”

–Michael S. Kim, firm co-founder
