Case Development - Clark Alpert, David Butler and Jeremy Weiss Succeed in Health Law Litigation
APRIL 18, 2013

In Gerges et al, v. Internal Medicine Consultants, et al., Clark Alpert (Partner, Madison), assisted by David Butler and Jeremy Weiss (Associates, Madison), succeeded in obtaining emergent permanent relief from the New Jersey Superior Court, Chancery Division, allowing three "hospitalist" doctors to avoid a restrictive covenant being asserted by their former employer. The former employer had gone out of business for all practical purposes; and the question presented, which was novel in New Jersey but addressed elsewhere throughout the country, was whether such an entity with only a technical remaining existence (albeit with potentially relevant ongoing medical activities by its former principals) had a right to enforce the former medical practice's restrictive covenant. Our litigation approach was successful in enabling our three clients to obtain a declaration (and other relief) that they were free of the restrictive covenant, with the litigation lasting only a matter of weeks.
