Watkins & Eager represents physicians contemplating employment agreements with hospitals, clinics, and other entities. We have deep experience guiding physicians through the intricacies of physician employment agreements. Our representation typically involves:

  • Pre-drafting considerations
  • Evaluation of independent contractor options
  • Stark Law and Anti-Kickback analysis
  • Compensation and expense reimbursement
  • Dispute resolution provisions
  • Termination and due process
  • Non-compete agreements and other restrictive covenants

We also represent physicians who sell an existing medical practice and become employed by the purchasing hospital or physician group. We assist physicians with appropriate employment agreements that clearly and precisely state the parties’ expectations and their respective rights and obligations.
