Herbert Smith Freehills partner Benjamin Rubinstein has been named to the 2017 edition of Benchmark Litigation's "Under 40 Hot List" honoring the achievements of the United States' most accomplished legal partners aged 40 or younger. Compiled through a process of peer review and case examination, the list identifies the top up-and-coming attorneys in the U.S.
Ben is a partner in the dispute resolution, product liability and class actions practices and he is based in the firm's New York office. With extensive experience defending individual, class action and governmental lawsuits both in the United States and abroad, Ben brings valuable insight and perspective to clients. He has served as national and international coordinating counsel in litigation in the United States, Australia, Canada, Nigeria, Russia and South Korea, among other jurisdictions.
Much of Ben's practice focuses on product liability counselling and defense for companies and investors in various sectors facing pending or potential product liability regulatory or litigation exposure, including tobacco, food and beverage, medical devices, telecommunications and energy. With the increasingly global nature of product liability regulation and litigation, Ben's ability to coordinate these complex matters is vital for the firm's clients in need of a robust and well-coordinated defense across multiple jurisdictions.
"Ben's inclusion on this list of top law firm partners is well-deserved. He is an excellent lawyer with the highest level of commitment to his clients and he has been an instrumental part of the firm's New York office since its launch in 2012," commented Thomas Riley, managing partner of Herbert Smith Freehills' New York office.
The New York office of Herbert Smith Freehills includes a team of international arbitration specialists as well as seasoned litigators representing clients in a wide range of commercial litigation, investigations, cross-border matters and class actions throughout the United States. New York is also a hub for the firm's global Latin America practice with a focus on infrastructure and project finance matters.
