PROVIDENCE – Former Cranston Mayor – and two-time Republican candidate for governor – Allan Fung has landed a new job as a partner at the Johnston-based law firm Pannone Lopes Devereaux & O’Gara LLC.

“Returning to practicing law in a thriving law firm where I can contribute to its continued growth is exciting, and I am delighted at the opportunities ahead,” Fung said in a statement released by the law firm.

The lobbying arm of the firm has a long list of clients that, this year, includes:

Eli Lilly and Co.; the American Council of Life Insurers; the University of Rhode Island; Enterprise Holdings; Altria Client Services; American Fuel & Petro Chemical Manufacturers; Advantage Capital; the American Chemistry Council; Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PHRMA); Amgen; the R.I. Assisted Living Association and the R.I. Franchisee Association.

It is unclear if Fung – who lobbied years ago for the insurance industry – will return to lobbying. His wife – Rep. Barbara Ann Fenton-Fung – is a freshman state lawmaker this year.
