Rosenberg left Hogan Lovells LLP on Aug. 31 to become senior counselor to Comey, who was sworn in yesterday by Attorney General Eric Holder. Rosenberg served as chief of staff to then-Deputy Attorney General Comey in 2005.

In June 2006, the Senate unanimously confirmed Rosenberg as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. From June 2005 until March 2006, he served as the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Texas.

Prior to that, he served in several senior posts at the Department of Justice where his work focused on counterterrorism, counterintelligence, and national security matters, including his roles with Comey, counselor to former Attorney General John Ashcroft and as counsel to Mueller.

Before joining the FBI, Rosenberg was an Assistant U. S. Attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, in Norfolk and, subsequently, in Alexandria. There he prosecuted financial fraud crimes, violent crimes, and espionage cases.

In 2007, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales tapped Rosenberg as his acting chief of staff after Kyle Sampson resigned for his role in the Justice Department’s abrupt dismissal of U.S. Attorneys. Rosenberg initiated a DOJ inquiry into possibly inappropriate political considerations in Monica Goodling’s hiring practices.

He left the Virginia office in October 2008 and went on to join Hogan’s Washington, D.C. office in 2009 as a partner in the litigation practice group.

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.
