Former prime minister Stephen Harper has landed himself a job with an international law firm.

Dentons announced Monday that Harper has teamed up with the firm to provide clients with advice on market access, managing global geopolitical and economic risk, and maximize value in global markets.

The law firm has on its roster former Liberal prime minister Jean Chrétien, former ambassador to the U.S. Gary Doer, and James Moore, Harper's former industry minister.

The statement from Dentons announcing Harper's position touts his experience as the leader of a G-7 country, his management of the 2008 economic downturn and his work negotiating free trade treaties for Canada.

The company calls the relationship with Harper a "strategic affiliation," noting that Harper remains chairman and CEO of his own consulting agency.

Harper will work out of the Dentons office in Calgary.

He officially resigned as an MP last month after stepping down as Conservative leader following the party's 2015 election loss.
