Boehner, meanwhile, said he hoped to continue his work to removing “government barriers to economic growth and job creation.”
“My role with Squire Patton Boggs will give me the opportunity to engage with leaders in business and government throughout the world and help them work through the challenges they face as part of a world-class team.”
The firm, which has 1,500 lawyers, has three major offices in Ohio: Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati, and the firm’s global leadership team is based in Cincinnati. Ruehlmann is the son of former Cincinnati Mayor Gene Ruehlmann. Boehner will work frequently from both the D.C. and Cincinnati offices, but will also be traveling to the firm’s other 44 offices around the world.
Boehner, who retired from the House, in October, will join longtime aides John Criscuolo and Amy Lozupone, as well as former Boehner deputy chief of staff Dave Schnittger and policy adviser Natasha Hammond at the firm.
Boehner served in Congress from 1990 to October 2015, along with four years as speaker.
