Attorney Resigns From Harbor Commission


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Los Angeles attorney Kaylynn Kim, the first Asian female to be appointed to the Board of Los Angeles Harbor Commission, has announced her resignation, effective June 30.

A spokesperson for the commission said Kim made the announcement at a meeting last Wednesday, and attributed her decision to her upcoming wedding and new position as managing partner of Terra Imperium Capital Partners LLC, a renewable energy consulting firm.

Kim previously worked for Allen Matkins Leck Gamble & Natsis LLP and maintained her own practice before that.

She was appointed to the five-member civilian panel that oversees the Port of Los Angeles in September 2005 by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, shortly after serving on Villaraigosa’s transition team in the weeks following his election.

Her biography on the commission website identifies her as the highest ranking Asian-American commissioner in the city.

Kim attended Southwestern Law School and joined the State Bar in 2002. She also holds a doctor of chiropractic degree from the Southern California University of Health Sciences.
