Danielle Rose serves as lead counsel in high-stakes commercial disputes, often arising from significant market disruptions, such as the COVID-19-related downturn and the subprime mortgage crisis. Such disputes frequently involve complex financial products (including residential and commercial mortgage-backed securities, collateralized loan obligations (CLOs) and other debt instruments) as well as M&A, joint venture and cross-border transactions. Ms. Rose also advises boards of directors with respect to shareholder demands.  

Among other professional recognitions, Benchmark Litigation has named Ms. Rose one of the “Top 250 Women in Litigation” and as a New York “litigation star.” The Legal 500 U.S. and Super Lawyers have also recognized Ms. Rose’s work. Ms. Rose began her career at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, where she litigated complex commercial and securities disputes, including M&A matters.  

Following law school, Ms. Rose clerked for the Honorable Leonard B. Sand of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
