Officials at Nixon Peabody LLP say that Scott Brown, who has been exploring a run for US Senate in New Hampshire, is no longer working for the law firm.
The news of Brown’s departure from the firm’s Boston office was confirmed both by the firm and by an aide to the former Massachusetts senator.
“We enjoyed having Scott as a member of our team,” Andrew Glincher, the firm’s chief executive and managing partner, said in a statement. “We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
Allison McClain, a Nixon Peabody spokeswoman, reiterated that Brown is no longer working at the firm.
Reached on his cellphone, Brown refused to comment.
“I’m not going to confirm anything regarding my personal life,” he said.
A Republican, Brown has been exploring a run against US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat. He is widely expected to make his bid official soon.
Brown joined Nixon Peabody in March 2013, after losing his Senate seat to Democrat Elizabeth Warren the previous November. At the time, his legal work there was said to be focusing on matters relating to the financial services industry and commercial real estate.
