K Street Files: Brown Joins Law Firm

The Boston office of law and lobbying firm Nixon Peabody has nabbed former Sen. Scott P. Brown, R-Mass., as counsel.

He will focus on business and government affairs, particularly in financial services and commercial real estate.

“Nixon Peabody has a national presence and a strong reputation,” Brown said in a statement announcing the move. “The culture is one of collaboration among its lawyers and with clients. 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.”

Other former government officials already at Nixon Peabody include ex-Rep. Thomas M. Reynolds, R-N.Y., who heads the shop’s government relations practice.

Brown, who is a commentator for Fox News, has also been floated as a potential gubernatorial candidate in the Bay State. He holds a law degree from Boston College Law School.

Costello Hangs Shingle

Former Rep. Jerry F. Costello, D-Ill., has opened the Jerry Costello Group with offices in Belleville, Ill., and Washington, D.C.

Costello will focus on advocacy work for trade associations and companies, according to a press announcement.

In Congress, Costello served on the transportation and science panels with a particular focus on aviation and space, including chairing the House Aerospace Caucus.

Costello did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
