As an attorney, he has more than 35 years’ experience litigating complex matters in state and federal courts across the country, including as a partner at Kirkland & Ellis. He supervised more than 400 attorneys while serving as General Counsel at the Department of Transportation and also served as General Counsel and Senior Policy Advisor at the White House Office of Management and Budget," Barr released in a statement. "He currently serves as Deputy Secretary of Transportation, where he leads 50,000 employees.  His years of outstanding legal and management experience make him an excellent choice to succeed Deputy Attorney  General Rod Rosenstein, who has served the Department of Justice over many years with dedication and distinction.”  

Here is Rosen's bio, courtesy of the White House:

Rosenstein announced his departure from the Justice Department last fall and came under fire again this week for allegedly discussing how to remove President Trump through the 25th Amendment.
