I appreciate that some of the issues discussed in these Risk Tips can be somewhat complicated. Take engagement letters, for example. Advice like “Send an engagement letter” can be difficult to comprehend. And admonitions to carefully review outside counsel terms can really tax the brain. After all, not everyone immerses themselves in intensive study of professional responsibility esoterica.
So, for those among us who struggle with these difficult concepts, I’ve enlisted a couple of old friends to help communicate, in the simplest terms possible, best practices for use of engagement letters. Please study these carefully. You can even take them with you to read the next time you are sitting in your dentist’s waiting room.
