WASHINGTON, March 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Well-known Washington D.C. trial attorney, economist, and expert in antitrust law Jonathan L. Rubin has launched a new law firm, Rubin PLLC. Rubin was formerly antitrust partner at Patton Boggs LLP in Washington.
Rubin specializes in antitrust litigation, most notably monopolization, corporate collusion, and unlawful merger cases. He spearheaded a private court challenge to the ESS-Diebold merger, which a September 2009 New York Times editorial stated raised "classic antitrust concerns" in the voting machines market.
"The era of deregulation and oligopoly only increases the role for antitrust law," said Rubin, an experienced civil litigator and Ph.D. economist. "The need for a D.C.-based, boutique antitrust firm is steadily growing."
Rubin PLLC will be an advocate for stronger enforcement of the antitrust laws to promote competition that benefits American consumers and businesses alike.
"The new firm will focus on practical solutions to competition law problems," said Rubin. "Clients want results-driven services, which means they don't necessarily need the superstructure of a large, international law firm. Instead, we're network-powered, which means we have access to the professional expertise a particular project needs to succeed."
Rubin has taught at the George Washington University School of Law and at the University of Copenhagen Department of Economics. He is an Advisory Board member of the American Antitrust Institute and a member of the Antitrust Section of the American Bar Association.
