Associate Agreements


We represent both Associates and Owners who wish to enter into an Associate agreement. Each party will benefit from such an agreement. The agreement specifically defines the working relationship. In doing so, the agreement paves the way for a productive and clear practice environment.

Consultation and Contract preparation

We are adept in matching your desired working relationship with the legal language to guarantee that outcome. We are experienced in locating and defining what each party is willing to undertake and how that must be defined in a valid contract.

Negotiable Terms

 There are many aspects of the working relationship that are defined in an Associate agreement. These terms are always up for negotiation. Some of these factors include:

  • Hours
  • Compensation
  • Patient Record Ownership
  • Liability for Malpractice
  • Insurance requirements
  • Lab Cost allocation
  • Right of First Refusal
  • Options to Purchase the practice later on.

Our experience allows us to effectively and quickly navigate those terms to ensure our client’s best interest is upheld.
