Kobre & Kim Receives Top Rankings in the 2014 Edition of Chambers

June 18, 2014

Publication: Chambers

Chambers has recognized several of Kobre & Kim’s offices and litigators for their aggressive, trial-ready litigation model and successes during the past year.

The Florida team was also acknowledged for being a “highly skilled, highly experienced, nimble group who anyone would be well served having to protect their interests. They have really established a reputation in the white-collar community nationally of being in the top echelon of go-to crisis firms.” Matthew Menchel was noted as being a “fearless and relentless trial lawyer who can walk into a courtroom on any matter in any jurisdiction and command the issues."  In addition, clients appreciated Andrew Lourie's ability to provide "measured advice" and say they "have the highest compliments for him."

In Washington DC, the firm was highlighted for being “attuned to the way DC works and to the way a Senate subcommittee works. They know the rules and procedures.” Eric Bruce was commended for his strong talents as a trial lawyer and praised for his "meticulous preparation" and "absolutely brilliant cross-examinations."

In recognizing the firm’s New York office, Chambers praised the office for “an incredibly strong reputation in trial defense” and particularly “the quality of the personnel and their professional approach to all aspects of the client experience.” Co-founders Michael Kim and Steven Kobre also received individual recognition for their work in white-collar crime and commercial litigation.  Michael was described by commentators as a “rockstar – he has incredible depth and breadth of intelligence,” and Steve was characterized as a “strategic thinker who is very practical.”
