Rosanna uses her in-depth knowledge of the legislative process, experience navigating complex issues and relationships with legislators and senior staff to identify issues impacting individuals and businesses in California. Longstanding connections with policy makers, top advisors to the Governor, and state agency and department officials, at all levels, help Rosanna effectively represent her clients by advocating for the passage of legislation or to stop or modify legislation conflicting with her clients' interests.
Rosanna has managed successful legislative negotiations with leading government officials, an array of interest groups, lobbyists and agency representatives on numerous controversial statewide policies. She works with Fortune 500 companies, public and private companies of all sizes, one of the largest public utilities in California, statewide associations, cities and special districts. Rosanna has represented multiple water districts, sanitary districts and cities throughout California. For example, on behalf of a southern California sanitary district Rosanna was able to successfully negotiate amendments to a bill that had the potential to take away 6,000 service connections, the result of which would have been devastating to the special district’s budget.
Prior to joining the firm, Rosanna gained experience working in the California Legislature. She served in both the Senate and the Assembly providing her with robust relationships in both houses and a thorough understanding of the legislative and parliamentary processes, the roles of legislative leaders, their staff and committee staff.
