While continuing to maintain his practice of law, Reuben has become a desired arbitrator and mediator of commercial disputes, including real estate, leases, condominium, and insurance issues. He has been designated with an AV Preeminent rating by Martindale-Hubbell for legal expertise and professional reputation, is a "Repeatedly Recommended" lawyer in the Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory, and has been listed in Best Lawyers in Canada since 2006.

Reuben is a frequent lecturer on real estate-related issues at professional institutes, legal associations, and universities. He has been an adjunct professor at Osgoode Hall Law School since 1977, teaching the Real Estate Transactions Course.

As a recipient of many awards and accolades, in 2018, Reuben was honoured with a Doctor of Laws, honoris causa (LLD) from the Law Society of Ontario. He was awarded the 2007 Law Society Medal by the Law Society of Upper Canada (now the Law Society of Ontario), which recognizes outstanding Ontario lawyers whose service reflects the highest ideals of the profession. He was the first recipient of the Ontario Bar Association Award of Excellence in Real Estate in January 1996. Reuben has also received the Gold Key Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Along with being one of the preeminent real estate lawyers in Canada, Reuben has also written several children’s books and regularly does readings at schools in southern Ontario.
