Rose ’92 Named Legal Partner

Jorian Rose ’92 has joined Venable LLP New York office as a partner. A bankruptcy and restructuring attorney, Rose was most recently a managing director at Macquarie Capital (USA), Inc., where he advised the global investment firm both as an attorney and a principal.

“Venable has a strong national bankruptcy platform and impressive full-service capabilities,” Rose says. “I am extremely excited about joining a firm with such great capabilities – this is one of those unfortunate times in history when clients will certainly need all of them.”

Rose has extensive experience representing clients in distressed and healthy matters. His experience includes representing debtors, creditors, creditors’ committees and lenders on restructurings as well as on mergers and acquisitions, capital raises and divestures. He has represented clients across a number of industries including mortgage lending/servicing, real estate, automotive, transportation, retail, energy, healthcare, leasing and aerospace and defense.

While at Macquarie, Rose played a key role in multiple acquisitions and capital raises. He joined Macquarie when the Australian-based firm acquired Giuliani Capital Advisors, where he had previously been a managing director and its general counsel from 2005 to 2007. Prior to Giuliani Capital, Rose was a member of the restructuring groups at WilmerHale LLP and Dewey Ballantine LLP.

Rose has considerable experience with many complex restructurings and bankruptcies, having represented debtors in large Chapter 11 cases including PSINet, ContiFinancial and KMart. He has also represented various creditors, creditors’ committees and lenders in cases including Alamo National (ANC) Rental Car, Glasstech Holdings, Global Crossing, PG&E, Sun Healthcare and Riese Restaurants.

Rose earned a B.A. in American studies from Hobart College and a J.D. from St. John’s University School of Law.
