HEALTHCARE LAW
Dr. David Seubert The licensed healthcare provider’s educational pathway provides little to no exposure to the business of medicine.

FAQS
I have been offered a job with a private practice. The practice manager sent me a contract. Do I need a lawyer to review my contract?

Many practice disputes and dissolutions could have been avoided or mitigated had proper contract negotiations been conducted. It is essential that the professional understand concepts such as “no complete” clause(s),” termination clauses and malpractice coverage prior to signing any contract. The professional joining a practice with expectations of becoming a partner must understand the pathway to partnership. It is essential that the licensed healthcare professional seek legal advice from a knowledgeable attorney prior to signing an employment contract.

Our private practice is considering merging with another practice in the community or becoming hospital employees. Should we consult an attorney prior to making this important decision?

Merging practices is a very complicated process. Likewise, transitioning from private practice to becoming a hospital employee is not a simple process. Practitioners in the process of transitioning have many responsibilities. It is essential that practitioners seek guidance from a knowledgeable attorney.

Several members from my practice are being sued in a medical malpractice case. Our practice is insured through the hospital that we practice at. The hospital has appointed one attorney to represent the hospital and members of my practice. It appears that our interests and the interests of the hospital are not aligned. Should we seek outside counsel?

At times in medical malpractice cases, the interests of the hospital and practitioners are not aligned. It may be a conflict for one attorney to represent the combined interests of the hospital and the practitioners. Such a conflict may compromise the rights of the practitioners. It is essential that practitioners seek outside counsel from a knowledgeable attorney if there is a possibility of conflict in representation.
