NEW YORK – Haynes and Boone, LLP announced today that Kenneth Rubinstein, a seasoned litigator and experienced trial attorney, has joined the firm as the co-head of its Business Litigation Practice Group in New York.  Mr. Rubinstein is the eighth attorney to join Haynes and Boone’s New York office since August.

Mr. Rubinstein represents publicly held and private companies and individuals in a wide range of civil matters.  He has extensive trial experience in federal and state courts as well as before arbitration tribunals.

Mr. Rubinstein’s practice is primarily focused on business and securities-related matters.  He is frequently retained by companies and executives in matters involving the negotiation of employment and separation agreements, as well as in litigation involving restrictive covenants, breach of fiduciary duty, and unfair competition. He routinely provides counsel in disputes arising out of financial transactions and also has substantial experience conducting internal corporate investigations.

Mr. Rubinstein arrives at Haynes and Boone after almost five years as a partner in the litigation department of a mid-size New York firm where he worked closely with the corporate securities practice group that recently joined Haynes and Boone. 

“We are delighted to welcome Ken to our New York team,” said Kenneth Bezozo, managing partner of the New York office.  “His outstanding abilities and unique skill set - both in courtrooms and boardrooms - will serve to strengthen and broaden the firm’s top-notch, client-centric service across our many practice areas.  We are looking to him to further develop and grow our expanding New York litigation practice.”

Mr. Rubinstein graduated with his B.A. degree, magna cum laude, from Queens College, City University of New York.   He received his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center in 1993.

The addition of Mr. Rubinstein, along with the recent additions to the firm’s New York Corporate / Securities practice, is part of Haynes and Boone’s strategic plan designed to enhance its corporate, securities, finance and capital markets capabilities in New York.

Haynes and Boone, LLP is an international law firm with offices in Texas, New York, Washington, D.C., Mexico City and Moscow, providing a full spectrum of legal services.  With more than 450 attorneys, Haynes and Boone is ranked among the largest law firms in the nation by The National Law Journal.  The firm has been recognized by Vault.com as one of the "20 Best Law Firms to Work For," by Corporate Board Member Magazine as one of the “Best Corporate Law Firms in America,” and has received the Minority Corporate Counsel Association’s Thomas L. Sager Award for its commitment to diversity.
