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

Listen to the founding partners, lawyers and analysts discuss the Analyst Program and the distinctive experience that Kobre & Kim offers.

About the Analyst Program

Kobre & Kim is recognized industrywide for its innovative Analyst Program, which now encompasses more than 70 analysts worldwide. Analysts work alongside lawyers from the inception of the investigative phase of cases through actual litigation. Working under the supervision of the firm's lawyers, our analysts provide research, knowledge and insight into sophisticated markets and a broad suite of highly specialized financial products. All analysts have opportunities for advancement after their first year, including transitioning to management roles, specializing in practice areas, and/or transferring to other offices worldwide.

Job Qualifications

Analysts are typically top-ranked graduates from the most prestigious colleges and universities.

Candidates should possess:

  • a four-year college degree; 
  • a strong GPA; 
  • a teamwork mentality; and 
  • excellent writing, research and communication skills.

The firm seeks self-confident, highly motivated individuals with varied academic and extracurricular interests. Curiosity about exploring financial markets and pursuing a career in law is welcomed but not required. Language skills — especially Arabic, German, Hebrew, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish — are a plus.
