Kim Jaimez, currently a partner at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, is a former federal prosecutor and experienced trial attorney who focuses her practice on corporate investigations, white collar defense, commercial litigation, and bankruptcy litigation. Kim’s experience working in the Major Frauds section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles brings a depth of knowledge and a unique perspective for clients managing internal corporate investigations, pre-deal due diligence, government enforcement proceedings, white collar criminal defense, and complex business disputes.

Kim also advises clients investigating misconduct, strategizing litigation remedies, making disclosures to government authorities, and in responding to criminal probes by government regulators.
During her near seven years as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Central District of California, Kim handled dozens of criminal matters, including trials, contested hearings, appeals, and grand jury investigations—leading teams of federal law enforcement agents from the FBI, FDA, IRS, DOL-OIG and other federal agencies—in matters concerning health care fraud, financial frauds, identity theft, extortion, and money laundering.
Prior to joining the U.S. Department of Justice, Kim worked in private practice handling corporate restructuring and bankruptcy litigation matters.
In addition to being a lifetime member of the John M. Langston Bar Association, Kim also serves on the Langston board as co-chair of the Sponsorship & Strategic Partnerships Committee.
