Deedee Bitran Published in the Florida Bar’s Business Law Section Blog

9.24.19

Fort Lauderdale attorney Deedee Bitran was recently published in the Florida Bar’s Business Law Section Blog.

Deedee’s article, “Florida’s New Law Voids Certain Physician Non-Competition Agreements,” highlights a new addition to Florida’s non-competition law which significantly alters the enforceability of certain physician non-competition agreements. Section 542.336, Florida Statutes, provides that as of July 1, 2019, non-competition agreements entered into between specialist physicians and an entity which employs or contracts with all physicians of that specialty in a specific county are void and unenforceable. Deedee’s article advises “physician employers should be aware of the new law and seek legal counsel to assess the enforceability of their non-competition agreements.”
