Rosen begins general counsel stint at USDOT


On Dec. 17, Jeffrey Rosen began serving the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) as general counsel. Following his nomination by President Bush Oct. 3, Rosen was confirmed by the Senate Dec. 9.

The department's 19th general counsel since USDOT was formed in 1967, Rosen previously served national law firm Kirkland & Ellis L.L.P. for 20 years in Washington, D.C., most recently as a senior partner in litigation.

He currently serves as a member of the D.C. Bar, U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal, 3rd, 4th, 6th and 11th Circuits; and the U.S. District Courts for the District of Columbia, Eastern District of Michigan and Northern District of Illinois.

"I expect [Rosen's] leadership, skill and experience in business and transportation-related litigation matters to benefit the department and consumers throughout the United States," said Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta in a prepared statement.
