One of LaHood’s spokeswomen, Jill Zuckman, said that LaHood is going to work as a senior policy advisor with the law firm. The spokeswoman also said that LaHood will not perform any lobbying.

According to a Congressional Research Service report from 2012, former Cabinet members are not permitted to lobby at their former agency for two years. They are under probation during those two years after leaving government because of the revolving-door laws. He is permitted to lobby Congress right away though. The report also stated that the ban of two years prevents former government members from lobbying top officials at federal executive branch departments and agencies.

DLA Piper also announced that Joan DeBoer will join the firm with LaHood as a policy adviser. DeBoer worked with LaHood as his chief of staff at the Transportation Department. She also worked in Congress with LaHood.
