Mr. Rubenstein practiced for more than five years as a litigator with the New York-based plaintiff’s firm LeBow & Associates, handling primarily civil rights and constitutional cases.

Prior to Mr. Rubenstein’s experience with LeBow & Associates, he practiced corporate law. He worked with the New York law firms Feldman, Weinstein & Smith and Mintz & Fraade, working on transactions including mergers, joint ventures, technology licensing, and reverse mergers, and on securities offerings and SEC reporting. A significant part of his practice with those firms involved the representation of emerging technology companies. He also worked in Tokyo, Japan with the Japanese law firms Blakemore & Mitsuki and Nagashima & Hashimoto, assisting both Japanese companies and foreign companies doing business in Japan, and working on English-language contracts and cross-border transactions.
Mr. Rubenstein earned his J.D. from Harvard Law School in 2000, where he was a member of the Harvard Environmental Law Review. Prior to that, he graduated magna cum laude from Carleton College in 1997 with a B.A. in Economics, and was named to Phi Beta Kappa and to the Dean’s List for 1994-96. Additionally, he completed biology, organic chemistry, and biochemistry at West Virginia State University and Marshall University, and uses that background to assist with scientific issues in his legal practice.
