Pennsylvania Democratic State Senator Lawrence M. Farnese Jr. has joined the Philadelphia office of Archer & Greiner as of counsel.
Farnese, who won indicted former state Senator Vincent Fumo’s Senate seat in November, formerly held a similar position with Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney.
Archer & Greiner said Farnese’s new position will allow him the flexibility he needs to devote his full-time attention to representing the 1st District in Philadelphia.
His practice revolves around complex commercial litigation, including copyright & trademark infringement, protection of corporate trade secrets, breach of fiduciary duty disputes and construction-related litigation.
The 175-lawyer Archer & Greiner firm of Haddonfield, New Jersey is attempting to grow its Philadelphia office. It added 21 lawyers from the dissolving Pelino & Lentz last month. The Philadelphia office now has 32 lawyers.
