Sam Dubbin’s chief undertaking has been fighting for the recognition of Holocaust Survivors’ rights to regain assets lost to those who profited off the Holocaust. His firm Dubbin & Kravetz represents Holocaust Survivors and Survivor organizations, including The Holocaust Survivors Foundation USA, Inc., a national alliance of elected leaders of grassroots Holocaust survivor organizations with thousands of members in 15 states.
Dubbin & Kravetz was one of three firms that successfully represented Hungarian Holocaust Survivors seeking restitution and an accounting against the United States government in the Hungarian Gold Train Case, which was settled for $25.5 million in 2005 after nearly five years of litigation. The firm also currently represents Holocaust survivors and heirs of Holocaust victims in litigation against European insurance companies that failed to pay the proceeds of insurance policies issued prior to World War II in federal court litigation, and for recovery of other assets as well.
Dubbin testified on the issue of unhonored insurance policies that were sold to Holocaust victims before the U.S. House Committee on Financial Services in February 2008, and before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on May 6, 2008.
Sam has decades of experience as a litigator in class action lawsuits, holding governments and large corporations accountable to their constituents and fighting for restorative justice for victims. More details about Sam’s Class Action work:
