Michael Dube, an honors graduate of Rutgers College (1999) and Rutgers Law School (2002), is a versatile and savvy litigator admitted to practice in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. He has spent nearly two decades practicing in diverse arenas such as complex commercial litigation, bioethics and clinical trials litigation, sports law, first-party insurance coverage and bad faith litigation, appellate advocacy (with a focus on written advocacy in federal and state appellate courts), personal injury and medical malpractice (from both a plaintiff's and defense perspective), products liability, and antitrust. He has “second chaired” numerous multi-million dollar verdicts at trial, or in arbitration, in favor of his firms' clients, and earned the reputation of rising to the moment. Since 2015, he has taught Amateur Sports Law at the University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law, moderated symposia and panels at the school (including the Fall 2016 symposium on O’Bannon v. NCAA featuring Mr. O’Bannon, and the Fall 2022 panel on the emerging rivalry between LIV Golf and the PGA Tour), advised students on careers in sports law, and coached participants in sports law competitions. Numerous New Hampshire hospitals and institutional review boards have invited Mr. Dube to speak on HHS and FDA regulations governing how human subjects research is conducted. Mr. Dube currently serves as a Visiting Assistant Professor at UNH Franklin Pierce, teaching Civil Procedure, Drug Law, and Amateur Sports Law, and loves to ruminate on the enforceability of parental releases in youth and high school sports.
