Robert “Robby” Dube grew up working in his family’s small business and ranch, so he understands the needs of businesses and works tirelessly to advocate for them in a cost-effective manner. He is a zealous litigator, having briefed, argued, and won various motions before both state and federal courts, and engaged in every stage of the litigation process, including taking and defending depositions and arguing and winning summary judgment motions.
Robby is also an experienced maritime and admiralty litigator, arguing in federal courts around the country. From multimillion dollar barge sales in Hawai’i to tort claims on local Minnesota lakes, Robby has aggressively pursued his clients’ interests. Whether working for vessel owners or their insurer, Robby has the experience needed to achieve a successful outcome. Robby is also deeply familiar with pursuing claims against all levels of government, including bid protests, municipal litigation, challenging terminations for cause, drafting requests for equitable adjustments, and producing government contract compliance guides for businesses. He has recently engaged in significant Administrative Procedures Act challenges against the federal government’s regulations under the ESA and MMPA at the district and Circuit level.
Robby graduated magna cum laude from the University of Minnesota Law School, where he served as Law Council President and as Executive Editor of the Minnesota Journal of International Law. He also served as the Head Writer for the law school musical T.O.R.T. (Theatre of the Relatively Talentless) and led the Orientation Program as a Program Director. After graduating, Robby clerked for Hawai’i Supreme Court Associate Justice Richard Pollack.
