Bruce D. Armon, a Partner and Chair of the Life Sciences Practice Group, was quoted in this article about the practice of medical moonlighting. Medical moonlighting is when medical residents and physicians work outside their current practices to supplement their income, network for future positions, or gain more clinical experience.

"Some contracts might restrict any work with a group or hospital deemed a competitor, or might stipulate that any income you earn belongs to the group," Mr. Armon said. He also provided legal and practical advice for residents and physicians who moonlight, recommending that they ask for flexibility in their moonlighting positions to avoid competitive situations should their primary positions require their presence.
