Former senator Scott Brown (R-Mass.) is joining the law firm Nixon Peabody LLP as counsel in the firm's Boston office, Nixon Peabody announced Monday.

Brown's practice will focus on business and government affairs, particularly in the finance and real estate industries.

“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," Brown said in a statement released by the firm. "My approach is consistent with the way Nixon Peabody does business and I believe we can be successful together.”

Brown lost his Senate seat in November to now-Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and opted not to run in a special election for the state's other Senate seat. He is still considered a potential gubernatorial candidate in 2014.

Brown recently signed on as an analyst for Fox News Channel. He's also heading to New Hampshire in April, a move that suggests he might be interested in running for president in 2016.
