Ken Salazar, President Obama’s Interior Secretary, has joined the law firm Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale & Dorr, also known as WilmerHale.

Salazar, according to reports, will split time between Colorado (which he represented in the U.S. Senate for four years), and D.C. Wilmer Hale isn’t much of a lobbying presence, but its clients include the Business Roundtable.

Also, former Sen. Joe Lieberman joins the law firm Kasowitz Benson Torres & Friedman, where he will work on “independent and internal investigations and advise clients on public policy, strategic and regulatory issues,” as Bloomberg reports it.
