Physician employment agreements play an important role in establishing the legal, but also operational, financial, and practical parameters of a physician’s practice. Lawyers, like doctors, have become increasingly specialized. It is important to have an attorney familiar with the unique needs, customary protections and most common pitfalls of physician employment agreements. Too often, physician employment agreements are reviewed and negotiated by attorneys who are unfamiliar with these issues, or worse yet, the agreements are not negotiated at all, but signed as presented. This is a real missed opportunity.
At Ferr & Mullin, we can prepare or review and negotiate physician employment agreements, and other ancillary documents, on behalf of health care providers and professionals, including physicians, dentists, psychologists, psychiatrists, mental health counselors, medical students and interns. We can help you build a win-win agreement with your new employer.
