New state senator moonlights at law firm

Just two weeks after being sworn in to a four-year term in the Pennsylvania Senate, Lawrence M. Farnese Jr. has landed another job.

Either the $78,315 starting salary for a state Senator isn't enough for Farnese to make ends meet or he doesn't anticipate having enough to do in what many critics say is a part-time job in the Legislature. (With benefits, the typical compensation package for each of Pennsylvania's 253 lawmakers is $150,000 a year.)

The Philadelphia Business Journal reports today that Farnese has joined the Philadelphia law firm of Archer & Greiner as "of counsel."

From Philadelphia Business Journal:
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.
