Rosenzweig concentrates his research and teaching in the area of tax law and policy. Before joining the Washington University law faculty in 2007, he was a visiting assistant professor at Northwestern University School of Law. He also was in private practice in New York, where he focused on federal income tax law and specialized in the areas of private equity, hedge funds, equity derivatives, and cross-border capital markets and clerked for Judge James L. Dennis, United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

The U.S. Treasury Department has taken action to
curb corporate tax inversions, making it more difficult to for U.S.
companies to merge with international firms and move abroad to reduce
their taxes. This move attempts to combat specific abuses within a
flawed framework, according to an international tax law expert at
Washington University in St. Louis School of Law.
