Physician and Executive Employment Contracts

Texas imposes special rules on any non-compete applicable to a physician. A physician must also consider professional liability insurance and who has the obligation to provide and pay for it during and after the employment relationship ends.

Executive employment contracts can include complex restrictive covenants and potential investments in a company. The employment agreement may call for specified incentive awards.  The executive should understand all obligations to the former employer, and any pro-rata bonuses or other incentive awards if the employment relationship were to end.

When presented with a physician or executive employment contract, contact the attorneys at Johnston Tobey Baruch for an evaluation of your claims by clicking the Tell Us About Your Case button and selecting the Employment Law option.


The publishing of results obtained by Texas law firms is limited by Comment #4 to Rule 7.02 of the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct. The rule states that advertising which reports a lawyer’s achievements on behalf of former clients “may be misleading if presented so as to lead a reasonable person to form an unjustified expectation” of similar results.  We are proud to discuss our past successes with you.  If you are interested in this, please contact us.
