William A. Ruskin

I am a Member of the Firm in the Litigation and Health Care and Life Sciences practices of Epstein Becker Green, based in New York. For more than 35 years, I have represented major industrial companies and manufacturers nationally in matters involving the defense of products liability, toxic tort, and environmental actions. In particular, I have enjoyed success in the defense of business and commercial litigation.

I am honored to have received an "AV Preeminent" Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell, signifying the highest level of professional excellence. I was also selected for inclusion in The American Lawyer and Martindale-Hubbell's Top Rated Lawyers 2013 list in Energy, Environmental & Natural Resources. In 2010 and 2011, I was recognized as one of the top litigation attorneys in New York City, in Avenue magazine's "Legal Elite" list. I have commented on important products liability and toxic tort developments on NPR's Marketplace and on The Verdict, a Canadian national television news program, and have been quoted in BusinessWeek, Financial Times, Product/Liability Law360, and other publications.

When I am not practicing law, I am a huge Cornell ice hockey fan and enjoy playing tennis (poorly!).
