Washington, D.C. – Rimon is proud to welcome former federal and state prosecutor and experienced regulatory focused litigator Jonathan Rosen, who has won over 100 trials, as a Partner in its Washington D.C. office.
Mr. Rosen joins Rimon from Polsinelli where he was a Shareholder and co-chair of the False Claims Act Defense Group.

In addition to his public representations, Mr. Rosen is frequently retained by corporations and executive management to conduct internal investigations, provide advice during investigations, and advise clients on remedial measures, compliance programs and training.
“Rimon’s commitment to building the firm with such impressive attorneys, along with its distinguished list of clients and prestigious financial services and securities practice, really impressed me,” said Mr. Rosen. “In today’s globalized economy, multi-jurisdictional inquiries from various government agencies arise regularly. I am excited to apply my more than two decades of public service and private practice to help grow Rimon’s white-collar defense and government investigations practice to serve our clients within an innovative and forward-thinking culture.”
Mr. Rosen also worked as a Partner in other top law firms, including Shook, Hardy & Bacon and Mintz Levin. He also received the Department of Justice’s Director’s Award.
