Atlanta Lawyers Drafting Physician Non-Compete Agreements
Employment contracts are an important component of any business. However, employment contracts for health care providers are exceedingly different from those for other professionals. For this reason, it is important to work with an attorney who understands the unique issues of health care institutions, whether you are negotiating or are obligated by an employment contract.
From our office in Atlanta, Allen & McCain, P.C., is one of a few law firms in Atlanta representing health care providers exclusively, including physicians, nurses, dentists, psychologists, podiatrists and other medical professionals. We are familiar with how health care institutions work as well as the specialized laws and regulations governing health care providers.

Georgia Enforceable Covenants Not to Compete Attorneys
An employment contract is an agreement between an employer and an employee specifying the terms and conditions of employment, including among other things, the following:
- Scope of services provided
- Methods of payment
- Sick days
- Malpractice insurance
- Grievance procedures
- Termination rights
- Patient list and practice protection
Many health care employment contracts have non-compete clauses or restrictive covenants that could potentially limit the providers’ services both during and following employment. Further, certain employment contracts, including those that provide for salaries over a certain limit and those with service terms extending beyond a certain time frame, need to be written properly to be enforceable.
For these and other reasons, thorough, detailed and comprehensive employment agreements are necessary to protect the rights and remedies of both the employer and employee. Our lawyers will work diligently to ensure that the contracts you draft or sign protect your interests and minimize the risk of future litigation.
