Michael Rubin named as one of California’s Top 100 Lawyers

The Daily Journal on September 18, 2019 named Altshuler Berzon LLP partner Michael Rubin one of the Top 100 Lawyers in the State of California, for the fourth year in a row.  Emphasizing Altshuler Berzon’s public policy and public interest work on behalf of consumers, the Daily Journal’s article discussed the firm’s recent victory in Blair v. Rent-a-Center, Inc., 928 F.3d 819 (9th Cir. 2019), which affirmed the right of plaintiffs in state-law consumer class action cases to litigate claims for public injunctions in court, rather than being compelled to litigate such claims in secret arbitration proceedings.  The article noted that the same rule established in Blair could also extend beyond consumer class actions to the employment context.
