Biography

Gabriel Rubin is Of Counsel in the San Francisco, California, office of Jackson Lewis P.C. He has more than a decade of experience litigating matters in state and federal courts.

He also advises and trains managers and supervisors on preventive litigation practices, focusing on how to comply with applicable laws and regulations, avoid workplace disputes, resolve employee relations problems, and satisfy legitimate employee expectations.
