Update buy-sell agreements to sidestep conflict
A lot can change in a practice over the course of a few years-the group's culture can shift, its financial standing may improve or decline, it may lose or gain physicians-and a practice may be setting itself up for financial or legal troubles if it doesn't keep its buy-sell agreement up to date to reflect these changes. Buy-sell agreements are the cornerstone of most private physician practices because they establish a process for bringing new owners on board and outline the financial and professional obligations of each member when a physician leaves the practice.
