Saul Ewing LLP, a full service law firm with more than 260 lawyers in 11 East Coast offices, announces that Richard T. Frazier, a partner in the firm’s Business and Finance Practice, has been appointed to serve on the Pennsylvania Judicial Conduct Board. He will serve a four-year term that will expire in February 2018.
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett appointed Frazier to the post.

Based in the firm’s Philadelphia and Chesterbrook offices, Frazier concentrates his practice on business and tax matters, particularly for health systems and institutions of higher education. He has been actively involved in the planning and implementation of numerous mergers and acquisitions as well as corporate restructurings, public-private partnerships and joint ventures.
Frazier received his law degree and master’s of legal letters in taxation from Villanova University School of Law. His other educational credentials include an MBA from the Dartmouth College Tuck School of Business and a bachelor’s degree, with honors, from Dartmouth College.
