MelMartinezOn October 1st, former U.S. Senator Mel Martinez will become a partner in DLA Piper, a law firm with offices in Tampa and Washington D.C.

The St. Petersburg Times reports:

DLA Piper partner Ignacio Sanchez confirmed the news following a partnership vote. “When he announced he was going to retire and let the governor appoint someone to finish out the term, I immediately talked to him and said, you really ought to consider looking at our firm. I think you would really do well, and we would love to have you,” Sanchez said.

The former senator will be banned from lobbying for two years, though Sanchez said he will be able to advise clients on a range of issues.
