San Antonio Health & Corporate Law Attorneys
At the Leichter Law Firm, we know that facing a negative peer review in San Antonio as a medical professional can be frightening and stressful, especially since the results of a peer review can be loss of credentials or a suspension/revocation of a license. Often stemming from accusations of misconduct, a peer review can be a long, complex, and frustrating process to go through, especially when your financial stability and your personal reputation are being threatened. As such, having legal support and guidance throughout the entire process is critical and often means the difference between a successful fight against accusations of misconduct and a loss of license.
Network and Insurance Terminations
When a physician or other worker in the health or corporate industry has their professional conduct and care questioned, or is disciplined due to violating standards of care or chemical dependency, that worker’s access to provider networks is often terminated. This termination is often just one more hit to your career and is something that can make getting back to work more difficult. Fortunately, with the help of a lawyer, these insurance and network terminations can be appealed.
National Practitioner Data Bank Disputes
If it turns out that your record is clean, or has been expunged or sealed, then you might be able to appeal the presence of these inquiries on your record. Appeals can be made to the National Practitioner Data Bank, which could result in the removal of documentation of a practitioner’s disciplinary inquiry. This can help protect your public reputation as a practitioner.
Partnership Formations, Modifications & Disputes
When it comes to not only having a successful business, but also protecting your career and livelihood, creating a successful professional entity, such as a partnership, can be critical. A successful professional association can mean greater efficiency and a higher profit margin for all parties involved, while a partnership that is poorly put together or illegally modified can mean disputes and legal consequences. As such, medical professionals looking to create a professional association should consider obtaining legal support when considering the following:
- Start-Up Procedures
- Purchase and Sale Agreements
- Shareholder Agreements
- Shareholder and Partner Disputes
- Property and Medical Equipment Leases and Contracts
- Employee / Employer Contracts
Each of these considerations can carry a lot of weight in forming your professional association. Having clear, legally binding, and well thought out documents pertaining to your professional relationships and organizations is important, both in defining the employer and employees’ roles, and in avoiding time-consuming and expensive legal disputes in the future.
The contract drafting process can be lengthy, as well as exhausting. But it is essential for a successful partnership. Fortunately, with legal help, each of the following is often easier to complete:
- Contract Drafting
- Contract Review
- Employment & Employee Advice and Counsel
- Contract Negotiations
- Non-Compete Agreements
It is important to carefully address all of these often essential professional documents and agreements.
