Middlesex DA will leave office next month

Joining firm that recently added Brown to ranks

Middlesex District Attorney Gerard T. Leone Jr. will step down from his prosecutor’s role next month, vacating one of the state’s most coveted elected ­offices to join the ­Boston law firm that hired Scott Brown, former senator, last week.

Leone, a Democrat whose successor will be appointed by Governor Deval Patrick to serve the remainder of the term, will join Nixon Peabody on April 29 to work in its government inves­tigations and white-collar defense practice, the firm said.
