Last week, he took a position at the University of Chicago. Now, the former mayor is joining the law firm of Katten Muchin Rosenman,. which has offices in New York, L.A., Washington, D.C., Charlotte and Chicago, as well as in London.
The law firm says Daley will be "of counsel" to the firm and will draw on "his vast knowledge, experience and relationships globally to contribute to the continued growth of the firm."
Daley joins Katten after 22 years as mayor and more than 40 years in government.
"I appreciate all of the professional offers I have received since announcing my plan to leave government," said Daley, who had opportunities to join other prominent law firms. "I chose Katten for a number of reasons. They're a well-managed group of talented professionals. They have an innovative yet practical approach to helping clients accomplish their goals, and they are expanding globally."
