Daschle comes to DLA Piper after spending several years at the law firm Alston & Bird, which he joined in 2005 after losing his Senate seat.“Senator Daschle is a senior statesman and is justifiably regarded as one of the wisest and most effective problem solvers in Washington as well as in the Nation and the world,— said Francis B.
