DLA Piper has snagged former Florida Sen. Mel Martinez as a partner in its Washington, D.C., and Tampa offices. Martinez, who left the Senate earlier this month with more than a year remaining on his first term, starts at the firm on Oct. 1. His hiring fills a hole on the roster at DLA Piper, which has seen some high-profile departures recently, such as former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell and former House Majority Leader Dick Armey.
