Fenty Joins Local Law Firm

Former D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty has added another title to his resume.

The law firm Klores Perry Mitchell, P.C., announced Thursday that Fenty is joining the firm as "special counsel."

"We are honored to have Mayor Fenty join us," said Bruce J. Klores, founding partner of Klores Perry Mitchell, in a press release. "His successful mayoral 'reformer approach' used to streamline the D.C. government and make it more responsive to residents will be a great asset to the firm. This innovative approach to law, combined with his strategic thinking and sound business judgment, will compliment the firm's focus on efficiency and attention to client needs."

This isn't the first law firm that Fenty has joined since being ousted as D.C.'s mayor by Vincent Gray.

In January, Fenty joined a Philadelphia consulting firm as an outside advisor and counsel. He also signed on with the Greater Talent Network, which is a celebrity speaking bureau.

In fact, the Washington Business Journal reported that this is Fenty's sixth different private-sector title since leaving office.

Firm founder Bruce Klores told the WBJ that to start, Fenty will spend about one day per week at the practice, which is located in Dupont Circle, and that the firm, which specializes in medical malpractice, hopes to broaden its business-dispute expertise with Fenty's help.

But there are some in D.C. who want to see Fenty get back into politics in D.C. -- and perhaps make even another run at mayor.

Will it happen? No one knows for sure, as Fenty has kept a low media profile.
