Former United States Attorney Chuck Rosenberg Joins Washington, D.C. Office of Hogan & Hartson

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 22, 2009 – Hogan & Hartson LLP announced today that Chuck Rosenberg, former United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, has joined the firm's Washington, D.C.* office as a partner in the litigation practice group. He will focus his practice on federal white collar criminal defense, internal investigations, and civil litigation.

As the chief federal law enforcement officer for the Eastern District of Virginia, Rosenberg supervised the prosecution of all federal crimes and the litigation of all civil matters in which the federal government had an interest, and managed more than 200 employees, in four offices — Alexandria, Richmond, Newport News, and Norfolk. While United States Attorney, Rosenberg also served as the Vice Chair of the Attorney General's Advisory Committee. Prior to being appointed and confirmed unanimously by the U.S. Senate to the Eastern District of Virginia post, Rosenberg served as the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Texas, based in Houston, Texas.

Rosenberg also served in several senior positions at the Department of Justice, including as Chief of Staff to Deputy Attorney General Jim Comey; Counselor to Attorney General John Ashcroft; and Counsel to Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Bob Mueller, where his work focused on counterterrorism, counterintelligence, national security, and criminal matters.

Before joining the FBI, Rosenberg was an Assistant United States Attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, in Norfolk and, subsequently, in Alexandria. There he prosecuted financial fraud crimes, violent crimes, and espionage cases. During the last two years of his tenure as a federal prosecutor in Alexandria, he supervised that office's Major Crimes Unit — the unit that prosecuted numerous prominent spy cases.

“Chuck's character, integrity, talent and experience, make his confidence in Hogan & Hartson particularly gratifying,” said Ty Cobb, head of the firm’s white collar criminal defense and investigations group, and head of the securities enforcement and compliance group. “His prominence in the white collar and enforcement community and his legendary work ethic greatly enhance Hogan's ability to well serve our clients around the world.”

“I was privileged in government to serve with a team of brilliant and dedicated men and women. I am fortunate to have found the same thing here — a top-notch firm with wonderful people, who are also wonderful lawyers,” said Rosenberg.

Rosenberg received his law degree from the University of Virginia. He earned a master's degree in public policy from Harvard University and a bachelor's degree from Tufts University. He and his wife have two children, and he has coached youth baseball and basketball in Northern Virginia for more than a decade. Rosenberg is admitted to practice in Virginia.
