Jason Dubner Acts as Editor of ABA Antitrust Committee Winter Newsletter

CHICAGO, January 9, 2019 – Butler Rubin partner Jason Dubner served as editor for the Winter 2019 newsletter for the Insurance & Financial Services Committee of the American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law. The Exchange periodically publishes articles on topics relevant to antitrust and consumer protection in the insurance and finance industries.

This edition of The Exchange begins with a fresh look at last summer’s Supreme Court opinion in Ohio v. American Express, as Gary Kubek of Debevoise & Plimpton LLP shares his thoughts on issues that the Court did not reach, which will likely be the subject of future litigation involving two-sided markets.  Next, Rebekah Newman and Nathaniel Hyman of Ropes & Gray LLP recap the October 3, 2018 teleconference co-sponsored by the IFS Committee that addressed the antitrust implications of common ownership of minority stakes in several competitors within the same industry.

Since joining Butler Rubin in 1999, Dubner has represented companies in both federal and state courts, in a variety of insurance and competition law matters – involving allegations of RICO, fraud, conspiracy and breach of contract. Dubner has also handled a number of significant reinsurance arbitrations, successfully representing both cedents and reinsurers.  In addition, he regularly advises clients on changes to their existing product distribution networks and in connection with opt-out antitrust litigation.  Dubner currently serves as a Vice-Chair of the ABA’s Section of Antitrust Law, Insurance and Financial Services Committee.
