Mr. Rosamond is a skilled trial lawyer with over 20 years of experience and a Partner in the Firm’s Business Litigation Practice Group. Mr. Rosamond’s practice covers criminal defense and commercial litigation in federal and state court, where he represents corporations and individuals in a broad array of civil, criminal and regulatory proceedings and investigations.  He has extensive experience handling complex commercial litigation involving issues including breach of contract, securities fraud, RICO, breach of fiduciary duty, tortious interference with contract and conversion.

Corporate and individual clients seek his assistance and experience as a former prosecutor with all aspects of the federal and state criminal process, from grand jury investigations through trial and responding to search warrants, subpoenas, and requests for information. Mr. Rosamond regularly achieves favorable dispositions of regulatory and criminal cases brought by the federal and state governments through negotiation or trial.

He also counsels and assists corporations, whether in regulated or non-regulated industries, with the implementation of effective corporate compliance and ethics programs to prevent and detect unlawful conduct before it becomes a more serious problem. He often conducts internal investigations to mitigate the impact of detected misconduct and minimize the corporation’s exposure to civil and criminal punishment. 

Mr. Rosamond is a dedicated pro bono advocate, having served as Chairman of McCarter’s Pro Bono Committee and as a current member of Volunteer Lawyers for Justice’s Board of Trustees. He is the 2017 recipient of the Golden Sun Award, presented by the Women Center's Dream Catcher program for his groundbreaking work combatting human trafficking and for arguing the first successful vacatur case for a trafficking victim in New Jersey. The Essex County Bar Association awarded him the 2012 Bernard J. Kuttner Pro Bono Service Award for his extensive criminal reentry work.

Prior to joining the Firm, he served as an Assistant Prosecutor with the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office, where he handled a variety of criminal prosecutions. He also served as a Judicial Law Clerk to the Honorable Patrick F. X. Fitzpatrick, Judge of the Superior Court, Civil Division, Bergen County, New Jersey.
