Working With The Right Lawyer Will Increase The Chances Of Success

The services that doctors and other health care practitioners provide are constantly in high demand, and it is important that they receive the right compensation for their specialized knowledge and experience. Pecoraro Law can protect the rights of health care practitioners, warn them of potential pitfalls and explain how to avoid them in contract negotiations.

For doctors or physicians groups negotiating contracts with employers such as hospitals, the employment contract will likely contain specific language about what procedures the doctors can perform and whether the doctor can practice for a competitor in the future.

Many doctors do not realize that they are signing contracts that contain noncompete agreements until it is too late. It is important to work with a lawyer who understands how to properly negotiate a contract and make sure it contains no language that will financially harm a doctor in the long run.

Physicians and other health care providers like nurse practitioners and physician assistants who are negotiating employment contracts and dealing with other professional issues such as licensing and credentialing should contact Pecoraro Law for assistance.
