Former U.S. Senator Scott Brown has joined the Boston law firm Nixon Peabody LLP.
According to a Monday announcement from the firm, Brown will focus on business and governmental affairs relating to the financial services industry and also on commercial real estate.
“During my time in politics, I never hesitated to reach across the aisle to work with members of any political party to secure a preferable outcome. My approach is consistent with the way Nixon Peabody does business and I believe we can be successful together," said Brown.
Brown left the Senate in January after he lost his re-election bid to Elizabeth Warren. There was some speculation soon after that he could end up running in the current race to finish John Kerry's term. During last year's re-election campaign, Brown stopped in Wakefield the week before election day and he is a graduate of Wakefield High School.
Brown, who earned his J.D degree at Boston College Law School, is also a former state representative, a former state senator, and a 33-year veteran of the Army National Guard with the rank of colonel in the Judge Advocate General Corps, noted the announcement.
