Bio
Mr. Shub is recognized as one of the nation’s leading consumer rights lawyers and has served in leadership roles in numerous federal and state class action cases over the past three decades. He has extensive experience representing classes against well-known manufacturers of all types of consumer products ranging from automobiles to air conditioning systems. He gained notable attention in the area of defective consumer electronics and computer hardware as a result of many cases against companies such as Hewlett-Packard, Maytag, IBM and Palm. In fact, Maximum PC, a leading computer product magazine, remarked that, “Shub is becoming renowned for orchestrating suits that have simultaneously benefited consumers and exposed buggy hardware.”

Mr. Shub, recognized in Pennsylvania Super Lawyers for the past nine years, presently serves as co-chair of the Class Action Litigation Group of the American Association for Justice (formerly called the Trial Lawyers of America), and serves as a moderator and speaker at various class action conferences. He is routinely quoted on class action issues in leading publications such as Law 360 and the Wall Street Journal and writes extensively about class action litigation.

A Philadelphia native, Mr. Shub is an avid cyclist and ardent supporter of all Philadelphia sport teams. He is also actively in Democratic politics on both the national and local levels.
