Bruce Armon, a Partner and Chair of the Firm’s Life Sciences Practice Group, was quoted in this article that provides information to medical professionals who are looking to begin new careers in academic medicine who may not be aware of, or do not pay attention to, the options available to them when they negotiate employment contracts.

“Never, never rely on a verbal commitment,” Mr. Armon said. “If the career possibilities are in writing, there is a much greater likelihood of their being enforced than if they were discussed in a conversation or addressed in a side arrangement.”
