Why Should Physicians Have Their Contracts Reviewed?

Put simply, because the contract you are signing matters.  It will affect how much you are paid, the working conditions of your employment, under what circumstances you can be fired, your entitlement to severance if things don’t work out, when you can leave employment,  and what you can do after the contract is over (non-competition clauses). And while physician clients are consistently highly intelligent with a decent understanding of legal matters, Texas law as it applies to employment contracts is not self-apparent through reading a contract and can often diverge significantly from logic or common sense.  I have litigated numerous cases where one phrase in a contract, or even one or two words, was a main battleground for the dispute over hundreds of thousands of dollars. A physician should protect their legal rights and financial interest by having an attorney review their employment contract before signing it.
