Kobre & Kim Bolsters Europe Investigations Team with Addition of Former US Department of Justice Prosecutor in Europe

June 22, 2016

Kobre & Kim has strengthened its government enforcement and investigations team with the addition of Jason A. Masimore in London. As a former prosecutor for the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Mr. Masimore will focus his practice on advising corporations and individual clients in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa facing allegations of corruption/bribery, securities, tax and accounting fraud, market manipulation, and violations of U.S. sanctions, among other violations.

Mr. Masimore brings extensive experience investigating criminal matters to the firm’s London office, a team that includes other former DOJ lawyers permanently based in the UK — Roger Burlingame and Lara Levinson. Mr. Masimore’s addition brings the total number of former DOJ lawyers in Kobre & Kim’s London office to five. Other lawyers include Robert Henoch, who splits time between Tel Aviv and London, and the firm’s co-founder, Michael Kim, who also practices part of the time from the firm’s London office.

All five former DOJ lawyers focus on Europe/Middle East/Africa matters and are part of a larger group of 13 former US government lawyers throughout the firm, including an Asia-focused team based in Hong Kong and Seoul and another focusing exclusively on Latin America.
