Rafael Rosario is an associate in the firm’s Securities Law practice group where he represents broker-dealers and registered representatives facing litigation, arbitration, regulatory proceedings, and internal investigations initiated by FINRA, the SEC, and other regulatory agencies.

Rafael has experience advising individual, small business, and large financial institutional clients in a variety of complex commercial, white-collar criminal, insurance coverage, and employment matters before administrative agencies, and state and federal courts.

He began his legal career with the Law Department of Prudential Financial where he investigated regulatory complaints concerning alleged violations of FINRA and SEC rules, and helped secure a temporary restraining order against former employees accused of misappropriating company trade secrets.

Rafael later practiced as a litigation associate with a large international law firm in New York, and with a large regional law firm in New Jersey. As a litigation associate, he obtained valuable experience, including successfully arguing an amicus brief before the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, defeating motions to dismiss insurance coverage disputes, and handling several immigration, special education, and criminal defense pro bono matters.

Before joining Bressler, Rafael was a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Michael A. Hammer, U.S. Magistrate Judge, District of New Jersey.
