ATLANTA – Nov. 6, 2019 – Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP has expanded its Commercial Litigation Practice with the addition of Steven J. Rosenwasser as a shareholder in the firm’s Atlanta office. Rosenwasser joins from Bondurant, Mixson & Elmore and focuses his practice on contracts, business torts, fraud, and class action matters.

"Steven's experience representing both defendants and plaintiffs in class action litigation gives him a unique and wide-ranging perspective," said Theodore I.
