Jennifer Rubin
Partner and Member of Employment, Labor and Benefits Section
Mintz Levin

Jen focuses her bi-coastal C-suite executive compensation practice on meeting the increasingly complex employment needs of executives of public and private corporations.

When she isn’t negotiating employment, equity and severance arrangements, Jen leverages her twenty-five years of experience as a trial lawyer to help clients craft business solutions to legal problems.

While Jen is a zealous advocate in the courtroom, she relishes her role as counselor and focuses her practice on solving employee mobility issues, litigating wage and hour class actions, and making employment regulations accessible for her corporate clients. Some of her more recent representative litigation matters include:

  • Obtained a judgment after trial for a medical device manufacturer against its former CEO affirming the company’s termination of the CEO for cause under an employment agreement, and an award of legal fees for the company against the former CEO.
  • Represented a leading provider of cloud computing applications and members of its management team in an employee non-solicitation lawsuit.
  • Successfully defeated claims after preliminary injunction hearing by one of the nation’s largest integrated pharmacy management companies against a former executive to prevent him from joining its competitor.
  • Represented a global investment bank relating to an alleged breach of an employee’s restrictive covenant agreement and unfair competition claims.
  • Obtained reversal of jury verdict after trial on appeal for race discrimination claims against a real estate developer in the Bronx County Supreme Court.
  • Successfully defeated collective action and class action certification in a wage and hour action against a provider of home health aides.

BTI Consulting Group recognized Jen as a Client Service All-Star in 2013 based on unprompted recommendations by nearly 250 corporate counsel at Fortune 1000 and other large corporations. She was selected for her superior client focus and keen understanding of their business issues.

Jen is frequently quoted in the Wall Street Journal and other publications about employment topics and trends, and contributes articles to publications such as the New York Law Journal and Corporate Board Member Magazine.

In addition to her client responsibilities, Jennifer leads Mintz Levin’s Diversity Committee in a number of initiatives aimed at promoting diversity in the profession and at the firm.
