Biography

Professor Kim’s area of interest is international tax policy and taxation on complicated investment structures. Her doctoral project is built upon an insight that although cross-border investments by private equity funds (PEFs) raise unique policy concerns, there has been relatively little study for PEFs. In a series of her recent papers, she analyzes the current international tax regime with regard to the taxation of PEFs, and suggests a new approach for PEFs, which will defer to the OECD’s basic policy on the taxation of funds while creating an implementation strategy using the exchange of information among tax authorities. 
 
She is a J.S.D. candidate in tax law at the New York University School of Law. She received her Bachelor of Law degree summa cum laude from Seoul National University College of Law in South Korea (2002), where she graduated first in her class and received the President of Seoul National University Award. She earned her LL.M. from Harvard Law School (2012), where she was awarded the Landon H. Gammon Fellowship for academic excellence.
 
Professor Kim is a member of the Korean Bar since 2007 and the New York Bar since 2013. She has worked at Yulchon in Korea (2007-2011), Caplin & Drysdale in Washington, D.C. (2012-2013, 2014, 2017), and Sullivan & Cromwell in New York (2015). She was selected as an Up and Coming Capital Markets Lawyer by Chambers Global (2008) and by Chambers Asia (2010), and won several notable tax cases at the Supreme Court of Korea.
