Biography

Mr. Rubenstein is a litigator with a diverse commercial practice encompassing business bankruptcy, complex business litigation, and criminal law. His bankruptcy practice is largely, though not exclusively, devoted to the representation of creditors in complex reorganizations. He routinely represents leading financial institutions throughout Texas and Louisiana.

Representative cases include:
•In re Greenfield Energy Services, Inc. (Bankr. D. Del.) - Lead counsel for SWEPI L.P., a senior secured creditor.
•In re ATP Oil & Gas Corporation (Bankr. S.D. Tex.) - Lead counsel for both trade creditors and energy companies potentially responsible for substantial decommissioning obligations due to the Debtor's default.
•In re Superior Offshore International (Bankr. S.D. Tex.) -- Lead counsel for the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors

His practice also regularly includes the defense of preference litigation in some of the largest bankruptcy cases in the United States. He is certified in the area of business bankruptcy law by the American Board of Certification.

Mr. Rubenstein has extensive experience in general business litigation and government enforcement proceedings. He also has substantial arbitration experience. In both the criminal and civil contexts, Mr. Rubenstein has managed complex and difficult electronic discovery projects.

Also, by order of the Louisiana Supreme Court, Mr. Rubenstein represented an inmate on death row at the Louisiana State Penitentiary. This representation resulted in a compromise with the State whereby the client was allowed to plead guilty to a lesser charge and a life sentence. In recognition of this work, Mr. Rubenstein received the Camille Gravel Pro Bono Award from the New Orleans Chapter of the Federal Bar Association and the firm received the Beacon of Justice Award from the National Legal Aid & Defender Association.
