MVA to Present Engagement Letter Workshop

May 19, 2015

Engagement letters set the stage for an attorney-client relationship. They establish parameters and expectations between an attorney and her client. A thoughtfully prepared engagement letter may address conflicts of interest, clarify responsibilities, and prevent confusion or disputes. Many law firms and attorneys have a standard engagement letter, but when and how should you tailor the standard letter for a particular engagement? When may you forego the formality of a written letter?

This program will help attorneys think through the practical and ethical considerations of a new client engagement and how, and when, to articulate those considerations in writing. The program will discuss certain rules of professional conduct and ethical opinions, as well as case law, applicable to engagement letters.
