She has worked with the Landis Rath & Cobb team representing chapter 11 debtors, official and unofficial committees, financial institutions, secured lenders and other secured creditors, indenture trustees and bondholders, asset purchasers, liquidation trusts and other significant creditors, chapter 15 foreign representatives, and other parties in interest in a variety of national bankruptcy cases. Kim represents clients in a wide range of industries, including retail, food and beverage, oil and gas, and manufacturing.

Kim was named one of five finalists for the International Women’s Insolvency and Restructuring Confederation (IWIRC) 2017, “Rising Star” award.  IWIRC is the premier international, networking and professional growth organization for women in the restructuring and insolvency industries. The IWIRC Rising Star finalist awards are bestowed upon five IWIRC members with eight (8) or less years of experience in the restructuring industry; who have made considerable contributions to the profession at the local, national and international levels.

Kim is the chair of the IWIRC Delaware Network and served as the past vice chair and social chair of the network.  She also is a member of the Delaware State Bar Association, the American Bankruptcy Institute, and the Delaware Bankruptcy American Inn of Court.

Kim was selected as one of only 40 bankruptcy practitioners to participate in the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges (NCBJ) fifth annual Next Generation Program.  Each year, the NCBJ selects “a small group of up-and-coming bankruptcy attorneys” to participate in the Next Generation Program, “who show the potential to distinguish themselves in future years as highly respected members of the bankruptcy bar.”

Before joining Landis Rath & Cobb, Kim clerked in the Superior Court for the State of Delaware for The Honorable Mary M. Johnston and clerked at the Office of Disciplinary Counsel of the Supreme Court of Delaware.  She earned her J.D. in 2008 from Widener University Delaware Law School and her Bachelor of Arts in government & politics with a minor in accounting from Widener University in 2005.
