During his tenure at the SEC, Kim had led the team of lawyers who updated the Division’s interpretations as Compliance and Disclosure Interpretations. He also led a number of rulemaking and policy initiatives of the SEC including the July 2013 rulemaking under the JOBS Act that removed the prohibition against general solicitation in Rule 506 and Rule 144A offerings, and paved the path towards smoother crowdfunding for small businesses.

Before joining the SEC, Kim had been the Corporate and Securities Counsel for the General Electric Company in Fairfield, CT. As a member of the Committee on Corporate Laws of the ABA, Kim has edited several editions of the ABA’s Corporate Director’s Guidebook.

Mark Hopson, managing partner of Sidley Austin’s Washington DC office welcomed Mr. Kim and said, “Tom is an exceptional addition to our firm … His broad experience in both the private sector and at the SEC will be a great asset to our clients.”
