CHICAGO, June 1 (UPI) -- Former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley is joining a prominent Chicago law firm, the firm announced.

Katten Muchin Rosenmann announced Daley will be "of counsel," the Chicago Tribune reported Wednesday. The firm said Daley will "draw on his vast knowledge, experience and relationships globally to contribute to the continued growth of the firm."

Katten Muchin has done a lot of work for the city, including negotiating the city's lease of its parking meters and the Chicago Skyway lease. The firm said Daley will not do any work in which the city is a party.

Daley, 69, served as mayor for 22 years, before stepping down this year. The University of Chicago announced last week he has been given a five-year appointment as a distinguished fellow.

Katten Muchin employs about 600 lawyers and has offices in New York, Los Angles, Washington, Charlotte, N.C., and London and expects to open one in Shanghai this year.
