Connecticut’s Commissioner of Consumer Protection is set to retire next month, according to reports.

William Rubenstein will depart the state agency after four years. He had previously been a partner at Axinn, Veltrop & Harkrider in Hartford, and served in the Connecticut Attorney General’s Office ad the Antitrust and Consumer Protection Department between 1986 and 1997, reports say.

In the early-1980s, Rubenstein was counsel for antitrust matters at the Federal Trade Commission.

Some of Rubenstein’s most prominent cases while at the state’s Commission include a crackdown on unfair mortgage practices and ticket resale market.

The governor is slated to announced Rubenstein’s replacement in the coming weeks.
