           Brown announced on Twitter Monday that he has joined the law firm of Nixon-Peabody LLP as counsel in its Boston office.  The law firm, in a statement, said Brown would be involved in business and government affairs  with a focus on the financial services industry and commercial real estate.  After winning the special election for Senate in 2010, the Republican lost his bid for re-election last year to Democrat Elizabeth Warren.  Brown decided not to try for a political comeback as a candidate in the special election to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of John Kerry.  Brown recently became a commentator on the Fox News network.  Some observers believe his decision to join the high powered law firm makes it less likely Brown will run for Massachusetts governor next year.
