Michael Tubach focuses on civil litigation and white-collar criminal defense. He represents companies and individuals in criminal, antitrust, securities, and class action disputes and internal investigations. His trial experience includes over 35 trials and 20 appellate arguments.
Michael is one of ten lawyers nationwide ranked “Band 1” in Antitrust by Chambers USA in 2018. He is also recommended by numerous other legal-ranking guides in addition to Chambers USA, including Legal 500, PLC Which Lawyer, and Best Lawyers in America, which quote sources who note that Michael is “an expert in white-collar litigation and antitrust and often represents clients in cases involving a combination of both areas, such as criminal cartel matters.” Earlier editions of Chambers USA note Michael’s “deep and thorough understanding of antitrust law, which is coupled with a patient and proactive work ethic,” and his “reputation as a top-flight trial lawyer for criminal antitrust litigation and cartel work.” For the past ten years, he has been named a Northern California “Super Lawyer” and a leader in the field of White Collar Criminal Defense in a survey published in San Francisco magazine.
In addition, Michael has served as managing partner of the Firm’s San Francisco office and as Chair of O’Melveny’s firmwide Pro Bono Committee. He previously served as President of the Bar Association of San Francisco in 2016.
