Bruce D. Armon

Bruce Armon counsels clients on how federal and state health care laws affect health care businesses.

As chair of Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr's Health Care Practice and managing partner of the firm's Philadelphia office, Bruce also brings insight on the leadership challenges his clients face from a day-to-day and long-range planning perspective.
