Rising Star: McDermott Will & Emery’s James Kim

Overview


James Kim was profiled as being among six government contracts attorneys under the age of 40 named to Law360’s 2015 Rising Stars list. Mr. Kim said he enjoys his practice’s challenges, noting, “To have cases within a single calendar year, let alone the 100 days some of these cases are decided in, it tends to create a fast-paced environment and a very high-pressure environment I thrive in.” Stephen Ryan, head of McDermott’s government strategies practice group, praised Mr. Kim as “a triple-threat lawyer. He’s a wonderful health care lawyer, he’s a wonderful government contracts lawyer, and he’s a wonderful human being.”
