Texas law treats physician employment agreements uniquely. Because of this, a doctor should hire an attorney who regularly drafts these agreements to help ensure that the doctor’s agreement meets all legal requirements and that the doctor obtains the best deal possible. Many issues can arise when a physician severs a relationship with a practice (such as non-compete issues, compensation concerns, and malpractice insurance issues); a doctor needs an experienced employment lawyer to provide advice on all aspects of the employment relationship before the physician joins the practice. Clouse Dunn LLP lawyers frequently advise physicians regarding employment issues.
When a physician decides to move on to a new employment opportunity, the lawyers at Clouse Dunn work with the former employer to negotiate a smooth departure. Should negotiations break down, however, the attorneys at Clouse Dunn are experienced in litigating disputes over physician employment agreements.
