Former Mayor Mark Stodola will join Little Rock's Barber Law Firm as an attorney.
In the private sector, Stodola will focus on government relations, business and regulatory transactions, and real estate, the business law firm said in a release Monday.
"Mark has the practical knowledge and innovative experience to support clients who are tackling opportunities that require navigating negotiations and regulations at all levels of government," Barber Law Firm PLLC managing member Perry Wilson said. "He has been in a unique position to cultivate many public-private partnerships, and he brings those development skills to our clients."
Stodola was mayor for 12 years. He announced that he wouldn't seek a fourth term in May due to the discovery of a family member's illness.
His last day in office was Dec. 31.
Prior to his election in 2006, Stodola was a senior partner at the Catlett and Stodola Law Firm, PLC. He's also served as Little Rock's city attorney and Pulaski County's prosecuting attorney.
