40 Under 40: Aaron Rosenberg


Partner, Myman Greenspan Fineman Fox Rosenberg & Light


Aaron Rosenberg, 36, is an example of a new breed of young attorney—one that can see the big picture and be more entrepreneurial on behalf of his clients. Today’s entertainment lawyer must think more broadly and be conversant in multiple business sectors, from advertising and consumer products to online streaming and mobile apps. By cultivating a wide spectrum of expertise, Rosenberg has amassed an impressive client list that includes Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber and Jessica Simpson. Rosenberg attributes his firm’s success this past year to “expanding our clients’ business from music brands to global brands.” During the past year, he’s hooked up Bieber with Adidas, Lopez with Verizon Wireless and Simpson with Weight Watchers. What’s ahead? Rosenberg is already thinking about the next generation of entertainment attorneys. “Many young lawyers either lack the skills . . . or the access to the key contacts that form the basis of good power brokering in our business,” he says. “Our firm has always taken a more organic approach to grooming the next generation, and I’m living proof of that.”
