Refresh and Rejuvenate Your Practice: Laying the Foundation: How to Use Your Engagement Letter to Set the Tone for Your Representation and Other Ethical Concerns

Description:

Beginning of relationships typically have a honeymoon phase, even in attorney-client relationships. While everything may go smoothly over the entire case, your engagement letter dictates what your boundaries are and what happens if things go south. This panel will be discussing what you should be including in your engagement letter to set the tone of the relationship and protect yourself, your firm, and your law license, including:

·       what information to include in them, 

·       potential pitfalls of failing to include certain language, 

·       common questions that potential clients may have, and 

·       ethical concerns and how to discuss those concerns with clients.
