Daily Business Review Honors Amy Rubin With Distinguished Leader AwardMarch 30, 2021 – Press Releases
Fox Rothschild LLP congratulates Amy S. Rubin, who was named among the Daily Business Review’s Distinguished Leaders in recognition of her four decades of achievements and leadership in the legal industry.
This coveted annual list highlights Florida attorneys who “achieved impressive results and demonstrated valuable leadership skills.”
Entering the profession at a time when women were still a distinct minority, Rubin quickly earned a reputation as a talented courtroom strategist and at a young age reached the pinnacle of commercial litigation - handling bet-the-company cases for a Fortune 500 company.
Today, Rubin oversees the nationwide litigation efforts for Wells Fargo, a Fortune 50 bank, taking the lead in complex trials in Florida and supervising litigation handled by her colleagues in 26 other Fox offices.
Throughout her career, Rubin has worked to advance women in the profession and has likewise always believed strongly that women should also serve as mentors to men. The trial teams she leads are training grounds for a legion of women and men who learned the craft and sharpened their litigation skills at her side.
Rubin was also part of a sea change in Fox's power structure. Women now chair or co-chair dozens of practice groups and serve as managing partners in nine firm offices, a trend that began with Rubin’s five-year tenure as managing partner of the West Palm Beach office. She guided the strategic growth of the firm's South Florida presence to provide a comprehensive suite of legal services and to focus on Florida-specific needs, including international trade, real estate, wealth planning and intellectual property.
A certified specialist in Civil Trial and Business Litigation Law by The Florida Bar, Rubin served six years by appointment from the Florida Board of Governors to the Florida Bar Business Litigation Certification Committee. She also serves as a regular panelist at the U.S. District Court Southern District of Florida and Palm Beach County Bench and Bar.
She earned her J.D., cum laude, from Saint Louis University School of Law and her B.A., with honors, from the University of Maryland.
