Ruben Conitzer advocates for his clients at all stages in high-stakes disputes. Ruben has a particularly strong focus on real estate and fraud recovery litigation and frequently represents real estate developers, landlords, buyers and sellers, real estate brokers, lenders, and victims of intricate financial frauds. Ruben’s practice also regularly involves litigating and resolving complex investment and partnership disputes, especially where the embezzlement of corporate assets is concerned.
In addition, a significant part of Ruben’s practice centers on complex multi-party litigation, specifically consumer class action lawsuits, in federal courts around the country. Ruben’s well-refined analytical skills and creative mindset, along with his background in corporate taxation and finance, help him identify theories of liability often overlooked by other attorneys and to avoid otherwise potentially dispositive defenses.
Before joining the firm, Ruben was a member of PricewaterhouseCoopers’ national tax practice in Washington, D.C. where he represented both public and private companies on corporate tax matters and often obtained private letter rulings from the United States Treasury. Ruben also served as a judicial intern to the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida.
Ruben attended the University of Miami School of Law where he was awarded numerous merit-based scholarships, earned CALI Excellence for the Future Awards for his coursework in Civil Procedure, Evidence, Criminal Law, International & Comparative Law, and Corporate Taxation, was a member of the Business Law Review, and was named to the Dean’s List every semester. In addition to earning a juris doctor degree, summa cum laude, Ruben also obtained LL.M. degrees in both Taxation and Estate Planning, as well as a Certificate in International Taxation.
