$80.00

Original Date: 03.06.12   General Credit: 2.00

This presentation covers the important role an engagement letter can play in defining the scope of the engagement, improving and maintaining client relations, exiting the client relationship, and avoiding or limiting claims of legal malpractice. Every lawyer should use an engagement letter: it sets the tone, the rules, and the basis for the lawyer-client relationship.

Included in the presentation are tips and strategies for crafting a comprehensive engagement letter and for avoiding possible pitfalls in the lawyer-client relationship, along with valuable information on how to explain billing practices, gross receipts taxes, retainers, and other ways attorneys can protect themselves and their firms.
