    Doug Emhoff, Harris’s husband, will leave his law firm.

    WILMINGTON, Del. — Doug Emhoff, the husband of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, has decided to permanently leave his law firm in the next several weeks as his wife prepares to assume the nation’s second-highest office on Jan. 20, a Biden transition team official said on Wednesday.

    It is not clear what Mr. Emhoff will do as the country’s first husband of a vice president. The transition official, who declined to be named because they were not authorized to speak publicly about Mr. Emhoff’s employment, said he was working with the rest of the transition team to support President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s agenda.

    Mr. Emhoff has served for more than a decade as a corporate lawyer representing large companies, including the pharmaceutical giant Merck and Dolarian Capital, an arms dealer, in a case related to the sale of weapons in Afghanistan.

    His ties to DLA Piper, a firm he joined in 2017 that has an active lobbying practice in Washington, might have become an issue for Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris, who have pledged to impose strict ethics limitations on people who serve in their administration.

    Mr. Emhoff took a leave of absence from his firm when Ms. Harris joined Mr. Biden as his running mate. The transition official said on Wednesday that Mr. Emhoff would sever all ties with DLA Piper before the inauguration.

    Ms. Harris and Mr. Emhoff will move into the vice president’s residence at the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington, not far from the White House. During the time that Mr. Biden’s wife, Jill, served as second lady, she continued to work as a professor at Northern Virginia Community College.
