Well, we are wrapping up our first month of engagement letter reviews and I'm very happy to say our CNA Lawyer's Professional Liability insureds are coming through with flying colors!
By CNA's definition, an engagement agreement is a written agreement between attorney and client in which key terms of the legal representation are defined, including the identity of the client, the scope of the representation, legal fees and expenses, responsibilities of the law firm and client, termination of the representation, and file retention and destruction.
Does anyone have anything else they recommend adding?
Thanks to our CNA Professional Liability insureds!
