Ex-Mass. AG Martha Coakley Lands Job at Boston Law Firm

Martha Coakley, the former Massachusetts attorney general who also ran unsuccessfully for governor and the U.S. Senate, has joined a Boston law firm.

Foley and Hoag said in a statement Wednesday that Coakley will work in several areas including health care, education, energy, and "government and internal investigations."

Coakley served two terms as Middlesex district attorney and two terms as attorney general. She was the 2014 Democratic nominee for governor, losing a close race to Republican Gov. Charlie Baker.

In 2010, Coakley lost to Republican Scott Brown in a special election to succeed the late U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy.

Coakley says she's looking forward to pursuing interests she worked on in government, while branching out to new areas.

She says Foley Hoag has shown a commitment to important social issues.
