We advise and negotiate matters related to base compensation, incentive compensation, signing bonuses, professional liability coverage, tail coverage, restrictive covenants, indemnification, term of contract, reimbursement for relocation expenses, termination, income guarantees, recruitment arrangements, employee benefits, buy-ins and buy-outs, valuations, on-call coverage, licensure, credentialing, and compliance with state and federal laws governing fraud and abuse, kickbacks and self-referral.
Our healthcare attorneys have prepared and negotiated hundreds of physician employment agreements for almost all medical specialties and subspecialties on behalf of employers and individual physicians. The depth and breadth of our experience enables us to understand the national and local markets for physician services and offer general counsel about the reasonableness of contract provisions. We use our experience and knowledge to help employers evaluate candidates and help physicians evaluate opportunities.
When appropriate, we also draw upon the experience and knowledge of our firm's employment and employee benefits lawyers to provide a comprehensive approach to physician employment issues. We also handle termination of employment agreements, enforcement of restrictive covenants and breach of contracts, and preparation of separation agreements.
