San Francisco – Sidley is pleased to announce that Kevin Rubino has rejoined the firm as a partner in its San Francisco office after serving as Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California.
While at the U.S. Attorney’s office, Mr. Rubino spent nearly four years prosecuting a wide range of federal offenses in the Criminal Division, including wire fraud, bank fraud, money laundering, cybersecurity, and trying numerous jury trials to verdict. He also led the prosecution of a wide-ranging pandemic-related fraud scheme and one of the largest RICO cases in California in recent years.
Prior to joining the U.S. Attorney’s office, Mr. Rubino was a partner at Sidley working on a range of civil commercial litigation matters with a particular focus on technology companies. His practice also included white-collar defense and investigations.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have Kevin return to Sidley following his tenure at the U.S. Attorney’s office,” said Sharon Flanagan, a member of the firm’s Management and Executive Committees and managing partner of Sidley’s San Francisco office. “Leveraging his experience as a federal prosecutor, combined with his previous litigation background and ongoing focus on issues facing the technology industry — from cloud computing to web scraping to AI — Kevin will be a key addition to both our Commercial Litigation and Disputes and our White Collar Defense and Investigations practices in Northern California.”
“Kevin will be a great addition to our Litigation team. As a talented former federal prosecutor, his experience will prove to be a valuable resource for our clients, regardless of industry,” said Bruce Braun, global co-leader of the firm’s Litigation practice group and a member of the firm’s Executive Committee. “I know our team in Northern California, including Dave Anderson and Sheila Armbrust who worked with Kevin at the U.S. Attorney’s office, are thrilled to be working with him again.”
