November 29, 1996 by and between Quintiles Transnational Corp., a corporation
organized under the laws of North Carolina (the "Company"), and Barrie Stevens
Haigh ("Haigh").

         WHEREAS, the Company and Innovex Limited ("Innovex"), a company
organized under the laws of England and Wales, are parties to a Share Exchange

outstanding common stock of the Company; and

         WHEREAS, the execution and delivery of this Agreement by the parties
hereto is a condition precedent to certain of the parties' obligations under the
Share Exchange Agreement.

         NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises set forth below

Company and Haigh agree as follows:

         1. Employment. The Company hereby employs Haigh and Haigh hereby
accepts employment on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.

         2. Nature of Employment. Haigh shall serve as Vice Chairman and shall
have the responsibilities and authority customarily associated with such office
and Haigh shall serve the Company in such capacity during the term of this
Agreement. Haigh shall be based in Marlow, United Kingdom, and shall travel to
such locations on such occasions as may from time to time be necessary in the
conduct of his duties.

                  2.1. Haigh shall perform all duties and exercise all authority

Directors.

                  2.2. Haigh shall devote all working time and best efforts to
perform successfully his duties and advance the Company's and/or its Affiliates'
interests; provided, however that Haigh will not be precluded from acting as a
non-executive director of any company for which he currently is so engaged, as a

personal benefit, or as a trustee of any trust the principal beneficiaries of
which are members of Haigh's family so long as such action does not violate the
non-competition provisions hereof or
<PAGE>   2
interfere with his duties hereunder; provided further, however, this provision
does not prohibit Haigh from personally owning and trading in stocks, bonds,
securities, real estate, commodities or other investment properties for his own
benefit to the extent that such activities are not otherwise inconsistent with
the terms of this Agreement. As used in this Agreement, "Affiliates" shall mean:
(i) the Company; (ii) any Company subsidiary or related entity (including
without limitation Innovex and its subsidiaries); and/or (iii) any entity
directly or indirectly controlled or beneficially owned in whole or part by the

practices as they may exist from time to time.

                  3.2. Haigh may participate in the Quintiles Transnational
Corp. Executive Compensation Plan (or successor plans) and any other cash bonus
plan which may be made available from time to time to Level 2 employees of the
Company on terms that are comparable to those provided to other Level 2

subject to the applicable terms, conditions and eligibility requirements of each
such plan, some of which are within the plan administrator's discretion, as they
may exist from time to time.

                  3.3. Haigh may participate in the Quintiles Transnational

Level 2 employees of the Company on terms that are comparable to those provided
to other Level 2 employees of the Company; provided, however, that Haigh's
participation is subject to (i) satisfactory performance as determined by the
Company Board of Directors or Compensation Committee in its sole discretion,
(ii) continued Company employment and (iii) the applicable terms, conditions and
eligibility requirements of each such plan, some of which are within the plan

to Haigh otherwise contemplated by this Section 3.4 for the period through March
31, 1998, but the Company will make such contributions and grants for the year
ended December 31, 1998, on a pro rata basis, for the period beginning April 1,
1998.

                       In addition, Haigh shall be entitled to: (i) retain,

times as will not interfere with the operations of the Company.

                  3.6. Nothing in this Agreement shall require the Company to
create, continue or refrain from amending, modifying, revising or revoking any
of the plans or programs made available to officers or employees of the Company
generally and referred to in Sections 3.2, 3.3, and 3.4. Haigh acknowledges that
the Company, in its sole discretion, may amend, modify, revise or revoke any
such general plans or programs. Any amendments, modifications, revisions and
revocations of these general plans or programs shall apply to Haigh from their
respective effective dates. Nothing in this Agreement shall afford Haigh any
greater rights or benefits with regard to these general plans or programs than
are afforded to him under their applicable terms, conditions and eligibility
requirements, some of which are within each plan administrator's discretion, as
they may exist from time to time.

                  3.7. If, at any time during which Haigh is receiving salary or

                       The above-stated items of compensation shall not be
deemed all-inclusive, and Haigh may receive other compensation, as may from time
to time be determined by the Board, including bonuses that may be provided by
the Company under the Company's annual incentive bonus plan or any comparable
bonus plan that may succeed it. Except as is otherwise provided herein, Haigh
shall be entitled to participate in all current and future employee stock option

of the Company is permitted to participate and the provisions herein are not
meant to be exclusive.

         4. Term of Employment. The original term of employment shall be for a

notice that the term of Haigh's employment hereunder will not be extended.
During all periods of employment, the terms, conditions and provisions set forth

employment relationship, the Company, in its sole discretion, may elect to pay
Haigh his salary and, subject to the terms, conditions and eligibility
requirements of the applicable plans, continue his benefits during the notice
period and, in lieu of requiring him to continue his duties as Vice Chairman,
may require him to perform only such other duties as it may assign to him or
require him not to perform any duties whatsoever for the Company and/or exclude
him from the Company and/or Affiliates' premises (without providing any reason
therefor), all subject to his performance of his duties as a director.

                  4.4 Upon termination of his employment for whatever reason,
Haigh shall immediately tender his resignation from all offices, directorships
or other positions in the Company and/or its Affiliates; provided that the
Company and Haigh will each agree to provide the other reasonable cooperation to
assure the orderly disposition by Haigh of Haigh's shareholdings in the Company.

Secrets and Confidential Information are the sole and exclusive property of the

Information only in accordance with applicable Company policies and procedures

remain in effect for as long as such information shall remain a trade secret
under applicable law.

<PAGE>   9
                         (c) Haigh shall not either before or after the
termination of his employment hereunder disclose to any person or persons any
confidential information in relation to the affairs of the Company or any of its

                         (d) The restriction contained in clauses (a) and (c)
are considered reasonable by the parties but if any such restriction shall be
found void but would be valid if some part thereof were deleted or the period or

(ii) five years from November 26, 1996.

                  6.4.   Remedies. Haigh acknowledges and agrees that Haigh's
failure to abide by the Trade Secrets, Confidential Information, Company
Property or Competitive Business Activities provisions of this Agreement would
cause irreparable harm to the Company and/or its Affiliates for which legal
remedies would be inadequate. Therefore, in addition to any legal or other
relief to which the Company and/or its Affiliates may be entitled by virtue of

equitable relief, including but not limited to preliminary and permanent
injunctive relief, for Haigh's actual or threatened failure to abide by these
provisions; (ii) Haigh will indemnify, upon final judicial determination that
Haigh has breached the terms of Section 6 or Section 7, the Company and/or its
Affiliates for all expenses (including attorneys' fees) in seeking to enforce
these provisions; and (iii) if, as a result of Haigh's failure to abide by the
Trade Secrets, Confidential Information, Company Property or Competitive

Information, Company Property and Competitive Business Activities provisions set
forth in this Agreement.

                  6.5. Other Agreements. Nothing in this Agreement shall
terminate, revoke or diminish Haigh's obligations or the Company's and/or its
Affiliates' rights and remedies under law or under Haigh's Deed of
Non-Competition with the Company and the Share Exchange Agreement relating to
trade secrets, confidential information, non-competition and intellectual
property.

         7. Intellectual Property Ownership.

                  7.1. As used in this Agreement, "Work Product" shall mean the
data, materials, documentation, computer programs, inventions (whether or not
patentable), picture, audio, video, artistic works, and all works of authorship,
including all worldwide rights therein under patent, copyright, trade secret,
confidential information, or other property rights, created or developed in
whole or in part by Haigh while employed by the Company (whether developed
during work hours or not), whether prior or subsequent to the date of this
Agreement.

                  7.2. All Work Product shall be considered work made for hire
by Haigh and owned by the Company. If any of the Work Product may not, by
operation of law, be considered work made for hire by Haigh for the Company, or
if ownership of all right, title, and interest of the intellectual property
rights therein shall not otherwise vest exclusively in the Company, Haigh hereby
assigns to the Company, and upon the future creation thereof automatically
assigns to the Company, without further consideration, the ownership of all Work
Product. The Company shall have the right to obtain and hold in its own name
copyrights, registrations, and any other protection available in the Work
Product. Haigh agrees to perform, during or after Haigh's employment, such
further acts which the Company requests as may be necessary or desirable to
transfer, perfect, and defend the Company's ownership of the Work Product.

                  7.3. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Agreement shall not
require assignment of any invention that: (i) Haigh developed entirely on his
own time without using the Company's equipment, supplies, facilities, Trade
Secrets or Confidential Information; and (ii) does not relate to the Company's
business or actual or anticipated research or development or result from any
work performed by Haigh for the Company.

                  7.4. Haigh shall promptly disclose to the Company in writing
all Work Product conceived, developed or made by him, individually or jointly
that relates in any way to the business conducted by the Company.

         8. License. To the extent that any preexisting materials are contained
in Work Product which Haigh delivers to the Company or its customers, Haigh
grants to the Company an irrevocable, nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
license to: (i) use and distribute (internally or externally) copies of, and
prepare derivative works based upon, such preexisting materials and derivative
works thereof; and (ii) authorize others to do any of the foregoing.

         9. Releases. Haigh acknowledges and agrees that: (i) as a part of his
services, he may provide his image, likeness, voice, or other characteristics;
and (ii) the Company may use his image, likeness, voice, or other
characteristics in its products and services with Haigh's reasonable review and
approval. Haigh consents to the use of such characteristics and expressly
releases the Company, its Affiliates and its and their respective agents,
employees, licensees and assigns from and against any and all claims which Haigh
has or may have for invasion of privacy, right of privacy, defamation, copyright
infringement, or any other causes of action arising out of the use, adaptation,
reproduction, distribution, broadcast, or exhibition of such characteristics.

         10. Haigh Representation. Haigh represents and warrants that neither
Haigh's employment nor the performance of Haigh's obligations under this
Agreement will (i) breach any duty or obligation Haigh owes to another or (ii)
violate any law, recognized ethics standard or recognized business custom.

         11. Waiver of Breach. The Company's or Haigh's waiver of any breach of
a provision of this Agreement shall not waive any subsequent breach by the other
party.

         12. Entire Agreement. Except as expressly provided in this Agreement,
this Agreement: (i) supersedes and cancels all other understandings and
agreements, oral or written, with respect to Haigh's employment with Innovex,
including without limitation that certain Service Agreement dated March 31, 1993
between Haigh and Innovex; (ii) supersedes all other understandings and
agreements, oral or written, between the parties with respect to the subject
matter of this Agreement; and (iii) constitutes the sole agreement between the
parties with respect to the terms of the Haigh's employment. Each party
acknowledges that: (i) no representations, inducements, promises or agreements,
oral or written, have been made by any party or by anyone acting on behalf of
any party, which are not embodied in this Agreement; and (ii) no agreement,
statement or promise not contained in this Agreement shall be valid. No change
or modification of this Agreement shall be valid or binding upon the parties
unless such change or modification is in writing and is signed by the parties.

         13. Severability. If a court of competent jurisdiction holds that any
provision or sub-part thereof contained in this Agreement is invalid, illegal or
unenforceable, that invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect
any other provision in this Agreement. Additionally, if any of the provisions,
clauses or phrases in the Trade Secrets, Confidential Information or Competitive
Business Activities provisions set forth in this Agreement are held
unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then the parties desire that
they be "blue-penciled" or rewritten by the court to the extent necessary to
render them enforceable to the maximum similar effect permitted by applicable
law.

         14. Parties Bound. The terms, provisions, covenants and agreements
contained in this Agreement shall apply to, be binding upon and inure to the
benefit of the Company's successors and assigns. The Company, at its sole
discretion, may assign this Agreement to any of its Affiliates. Haigh may not
assign this Agreement without the Company's prior written consent.

         15. Remedies. Haigh acknowledges and agrees that Haigh's breach of this
Agreement would cause the Company and/or its Affiliates irreparable harm for
which damages would be difficult, if not impossible, to ascertain and legal
remedies would be inadequate. Therefore, in addition to any legal or other
relief to which the Company and/or its Affiliates may be entitled by virtue of
the Haigh's breach or threatened breach of this Agreement, the Company and/or
its Affiliates may seek equitable relief, including but not limited to
preliminary and injunctive relief, and such other available remedies.


         16. Costs and Expenses. If a dispute occurs between the Company and
Haigh in connection with or arising under this Agreement, the prevailing party
in a final judgment in respect of such dispute shall be reimbursed by the other
party for all reasonable costs, including attorneys' fees and any other
necessary costs or expenses, incurred as a result of such dispute.

         17. Law and Jurisdiction. This Agreement shall be governed by and
construed in accordance with English law and the parties irrevocably submit to
the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the High Court of Justice in London for all
purposes connected with it.
