Global disputes and investigations firm Kobre & Kim announces today that it has strengthened its Government Enforcement & Investigations team with the addition of Jason A. Masimore in London.

As a former prosecutor for the US 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 and bribery; securities fraud and tax and accounting fraud; market manipulation; and violations of US sanctions, among other violations.

When asked about joining the firm, Mr. Masimore said, “I am delighted to be joining Kobre & Kim in London. The firm has built an impressive team that has an unparalleled reputation. I am excited for the opportunity to help enhance the firm’s abilities to advise international clients facing investigations and cases from US regulators.”

Mr. Masimore brings extensive experience investigating criminal matters to Kobre & Kim’s London office. With his addition, a total of five former DOJ lawyers will be based at that location. Among these are Lara Levinson and Roger Burlingame; they and Mr. Masimore are permanently based in London. Other former DOJ lawyers on the team 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 London office.
