TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is landing a new job with a major law firm that has a substantial presence in the state capital.

The Pittsburgh-based law firm of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney announced Monday that Bush will act as a strategic consultant to the firm and its clients.

The firm said that the “strategic affiliation” with Bush and his consulting firm Jeb Bush & Associates will focus primarily on Florida. Bush served as Florida’s governor for two terms and mounted an unsuccessful run earlier this year for president. Bush is not an attorney.

The law firm’s Florida government relations team is led by J.M. “Mac” Stipanovich, who has been friends with Bush for decades.

Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney represents roughly 60 clients before the Florida Legislature.
