Texas Law

Some people believe that non-compete agreement aren’t enforceable against physicians in the state. However, non-competes are actually enforceable depending on whether they meet certain statutory requirements. For example, these agreements must have reasonable limitations regarding the following:

  • Time
  • Scope of activity
  • Geographical area

Likewise, they can’t deny a doctor access to his or her patient list, must provide for a buy-out of the covenant at a reasonable fee, and must provide access to medical records upon patient authorization. A poorly reviewed non-compete could cause problems to doctors and expose them to unanticipated risks as well.
