Profile - Jonathan Rotenberg Jonathan Rotenberg Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP Jonathan Rotenberg has defended public companies and financial institutions of all kinds, as well as businesses spanning industries from energy to home furnishings to pharmaceuticals, against claims brought under the Securities Act of 1933, the Securities Act of 1934, and other federal and state securities laws. He has provided premerger compliance counsel for more than 50 deals in the data management, health care, insurance, pharmaceutical, sports, and telecommunications industries. A true "outside the box" thinker, Rotenberg brings a determined and unique approach to his advocacy, leaving no stone unturned in finding the right litigation strategy for his clients. In past cases, his determination has driven him to master Cayman Islands law in order to defeat a derivative claim, and to mine public filings to unearth evidence that a seemingly strong securities claim was time-barred—leading to an authoritative Second Circuit decision on the subject.
