“Having spent the last six years in the House of Assembly and as a senior cabinet minister, we’re quite pleased Jerome has decided to return to practice with RMM,” Steve Marshall, Partner at Roebothan McKay Marshall, said in a news release.
Kennedy held the portfolios of finance, justice, health and natural resources at various times in his six-year tenure as a politician.
Kennedy’s old boss, former premier Danny Williams, was one of the founding partners at Roebothan McKay and Marshall.
The law firm is responsible for representing the province in a massive lawsuit against tobacco companies for the harmful health effects of smoking.
In the news release issued by Roebothan McKay and Marshall, Kennedy said he is looking forward to getting back to practicing law.
