Adilene Rosales draws on years of public policy experience to guide clients through the labyrinth of rules, requirements, and considerations for doing business with the federal government. She works with businesses and nonprofit institutions through all stages of their federal contracts, grants, and cooperative agreements.

Adilene regularly counsels clients on government contract compliance issues related to privacy, small business contracting, mergers and acquisitions, and subcontracting. She has experience challenging and defending government contract awards in bid protests before the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) and federal, state, and local agencies.

She helps universities establish and maintain international education programs, including study abroad, foreign campuses, collaboration agreements, and student recruitment. She advises academic institutions on foreign labor, tax, and other regulatory issues associated with faculty and students working or studying remotely from outside the U.S.

Adilene guides academic medical centers, hospitals, and other health care organizations in developing international telemedicine initiatives. She has analyzed laws, regulations, and guidelines relating to telemedicine and remote second opinions in more than two dozen countries.

A part-time student by night and a legislative assistant for a senior member of Congress by day, Adilene worked throughout law school in the U.S. House of Representatives, handling a wide range of public policy issues, including education, small business, civil rights, and immigration.

Adilene is passionate about pro bono causes, particularly those related to immigration. She served as part of a team of Hogan Lovells lawyers who traveled to Dilley, Texas in 2018, where she provided legal advice to immigrant mothers and children detained at the detention center, many of whom had only recently been reunited after having been separated under the controversial family separation policy.
