Mr Boehner, who is not a lawyer, will advise clients on global business development and will work out of Washington and Cincinnati. He is joined by long-time aides John Criscuolo and Amy Lozupone.

Not lobbying

He will not become a lobbyist, a specialty for which Patton Boggs, before it was acquired by Squire Sanders, was best known. The firm remains active in the lobbying and public policy arena, and counts a former Senator and a former Senate Majority Leader among its employees.   

‘Work through challenges’

In a statement, Mr Boehner said that his new role at the firm will allow him to ‘engage with leaders in business and government throughout the world and help them work through challenges they face.’

Squire Patton Boggs has more than 1,500 lawyers in 46 offices in 21 countries.
