The Daily Journal Names Paul Rosen to 2020 “Top White Collar Lawyers” List

Los Angeles – December 9, 2020: The Daily Journal has named partner Paul M. Rosen to its 2020 list of “Top White Collar Lawyers,” which recognizes leading white collar defenders in California. Rosen serves as head of Crowell & Moring’s National Security practice and is a partner in the firm’s White Collar & Regulatory Enforcement, Privacy & Cybersecurity, and Government Contracts groups.

The Daily Journal highlighted Rosen’s extensive government experience as a former federal prosecutor, chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security, and counsel to former U.S. Senator Joe Biden. His recent successes include representing corporate and individual clients in non-public, high profile investigations, including those related to the college admissions “Varsity Blues” matter, Paycheck Protection Program loans, and congressional investigations. Rosen was also part of a team representing the Regents of the University of California in a matter resulting in a $50 million settlement and public apology from the University of Southern California for orchestrating a hostile raid on a UC San Diego Alzheimer’s disease research program.

“Beyond traditional white collar criminal defense work, my experience in all three branches of government has made me a sharper and more versatile lawyer, including development of offensive and defensive litigation, regulatory, and investigative strategies to help individuals, institutions, and companies solve complex and multi-dimensional challenges,” Rosen told the Daily Journal.

Rosen represents corporate and individual clients in federal and state criminal and civil government investigations and enforcement actions, internal investigations, cybersecurity and data privacy, trade and cross border issues including sanctions, national and homeland security, and litigation matters. Rosen is also a Board Member of Bet Tzedek Legal Services in Los Angeles, a non-profit legal aid organization that provides disadvantaged and those in need with comprehensive legal assistance.
