Business Spotlight: Rubin & Levin


Founded in 1977 by George A. Rubin and Elliott D. Levin, Rubin & Levin, P.C. has grown from a two-attorney practice to a mid-sized firm with over twenty attorneys located in the heart of the Massachusetts  Ave arts district in downtown Indianapolis with a focus on commercial collections, litigation, transactional services and bankruptcy.

George retired in December of 2013, but the collection practice that he founded (which is now the largest commercial collections practice in the state of Indiana) continues to run as efficiently as ever with managing partner Christine Hayes-Hickey at the helm.  As managing partner, head of the collections department,  and continuous contributor to the Indianapolis Bar Association and numerous other professional and trade organizations, Christine is a prominent figure in the Indianapolis bar and works tirelessly to maximize client recoveries.


Rubin & Levin’s litigation department provides ‘cradle to grave’ legal services. Filing suit, discovery, motions practice, trial advocacy, appeals and proceedings supplemental to judgment are all part of the suite of services we provide to our business clients.  Although most litigation firms consider a judgment the end goal, Rubin & Levin, considers a judgment just one step in the larger process of attempting to make our clients whole.  In fact, Rubin & Levin is routinely hired by various other law firms in order to convert their paper judgments into real dollars.


Rubin & Levin also maintains an active transactional practice—assisting financial institutions with their loans from origination, through work-out and foreclosure.  Rubin & Levin also assists businesses in all types of real estate matters from purchases, sales and leases to financing issues.  In addition, Rubin & Levin helps businesses with corporate formation, corporate succession planning, financing, buy-sell agreements, acquisitions, contract drafting and various other transactional issues.


Not only is Elliott Levin a trustee in bankruptcy, he has been involved in just about every major chapter 11 business bankruptcy to be filed in this state in the past 20 years.  Additionally, half of the firm’s attorneys are active bankruptcy court petitioners, whose representation includes numerous other bankruptcy trustees, financial institutions, creditors, debtors and any other person or entity whose interests may be affected in bankruptcy.


In the ever-evolving landscape of the legal industry, Rubin & Levin has established itself in an ideal position to meet the needs of large, small and mid-sized businesses.  The firm is stocked deeply enough with talented attorneys that it can handle even the most complex litigation or transaction matter, yet its small size relative to the sophistication level of its practice results in representation that is far more cost effective than that provided by the larger firms in the Indianapolis market.  Not only that, Rubin & Levin routinely engages in contingency fee and other arrangements alternative to the traditional billable hour in order to provide legal services specifically tailored to our clients’ situations.
