DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary has netted former House Minority Leader Richard Gephardt, D-Mo., who retired from Congress in January. In an interview with Influence, Legal Times‘ sister publication, Gephardt says he had been in “preliminary discussions” with the firm since last summer. Jeffrey Liss, co-managing partner of DLA Piper, says Gephardt’s friendship with John Zentay, who chairs the firm’s legislative practice, was instrumental in landing the 14-term congressman. Gephardt, who starts work at the firm this week, is barred from lobbying for one year. Says Gephardt: “I’m going to be giving strategic advice.” But Gephardt’s boss, Liss, says that “once he’s able to, he’ll lobby if that’s something that might be useful.” Liss says Gephardt will focus on labor and financial issues. Gephardt will also split his time between DLA Piper and Goldman Sachs, where he serves as an adviser.
