U.S. Sen. George LeMieux will return to Gunster law firm after leaving office.
H. William Perry, the firm's CEO and managing partner, announced Tuesday that LeMieux will resume his legal practice Jan. 4 and provide corporate counseling to the firm's clients.
LeMieux first joined Gunster in 1994. He earned his law degree from Georgetown University Law Center, with his undergraduate degree from Emory University.
LeMieux left Gunster in 2009, after Gov. Charlie Crist appointed him to the U.S. Senate. LeMieux filled the seat left vacant by the resignation of Sen. Mel Martinez.
LeMieux did not seek re-election, and Former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio won the seat in November. Rubio will take office Jan. 3.
