Physician’s Non-Competes in Texas: Beware! Part 2
The specific requirements of the statute (Section 15.50(a) of the Texas Business Code) appear to provide a blueprint for employers, and they are easy enough to recite in an agreement.

Moreover, real questions regarding legal enforceability (such as whether there was in fact an exchange of consideration for the non-compete obligation) will likely get lost, and so go important legal protections for physicians.
