Polsinelli Shughart has added a litigator to its Washington office, the firm announced Tuesday.
Jonathan Rosen joins the firm's white collar defense and government investigations practice as a shareholder. He was formerly a partner at Shook, Hardy & Bacon in Washington.
Rosen formerly served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Fraud and Public Corruption Section of the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia from 1998 to 2006. Rosen led the prosecution team investigating fraud in Iraq, and initiated the first prosecution using the alternative nationality provision of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
"Conducting an investigation in a war zone presented some fairly dramatic logistical hurdles," Rosen said in an interview.
Working with the special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction, Rosen and the U.S. Attorney's office earned a conviction in the case.
In private practice, Rosen has represented individuals and corporate clients like hospitals, provider groups, insurers, pharmaceutical companies, energy companies and government contractors in complex white collar matters.
"I look forward to collaborating with the healthcare practice and other corporate lawyers here who can add value for my clients," Rosen said.
