Physician Employment

Our business and health law firm regularly assists medical practices, other  physician employers, and physician employees with critical credentialing and licensure issues, employment contracts, employment termination and compensation disputes, administrative matters, and many other legal matters that emanate from physician employment, ranging from routine to highly complex employment-related legal matters.  The employment of a well-trained, high-compensation physician who is regulated as a licensed healthcare professional is in every instance a significant legal transaction for the physician and for his or her employer. So, while the employment of a physician is usually a significant financial and professional opportunity for both parties, the esoteric nature of the healthcare regulations and process to which physicians and their healthcare provider employers are subject render the opportunity one with numerous and significant legal and compliance risks.  Many such legal issues and risks (e.g., credentialing disputes, NPDB reporting obligations, tail insurance requirements, self-referral law prohibitions on compensation arrangements) are unique to the healthcare industry and, where legal advice or representation is needed, warrant the expertise of a skilled and experienced health law attorney.
