Amy Rubenstein – Dentons


Amy Rubenstein delivers thoughtful, pragmatic, and actionable legal guidance by listening to clients and bridging pathways to their goals. Throughout her two-decade career, Amy has crafted innovative legal solutions across highly regulated, ever-evolving industries (cannabis, chemical, pharmaceutical, insurance, manufacturing, and food & beverage).

She brings business savvy, knowledge of key industry forces, and a perspective on emerging trends to every engagement. In addition, she zealously uncovers new avenues for clients, colleagues, and subject matter experts to think unconventionally. Amy’s differentiated approach leads to pragmatic solutions that not only tackle the legal matter at hand, but set up clients for long-term success in their field.

Amy consistently has achieved outsize results across practice areas by adding value beyond the legal remit. Her command of multiple industries brings unique sophistication to the relatively nascent cannabis space, which the industry notices and craves. In addition, Amy’s unparalleled experience developing PFAS (“Forever Chemicals”) risk management strategies has made her a highly sought-after global resource. She likewise develops novel methodologies to maximize stakeholder value in clean energy projects, including carbon capture.

Clients recognize the value that Amy contributes. A client recently praised Amy’s “tireless tenacity, knowledge of the law and focused intellect.” Another client noted that he appreciates Amy’s “unique ability to grasp complex issues, both legal and factual, involving complex scientific subject matters, and convey it all in an intelligent, convincing and understandable way.” A federal district court judge lauded Amy after a jury trial for “a job well done under considerable pressure.”
