Effective Engagement Letters and Other Simple Risk-Management Tools (Aug 2017)

Keeping the client reasonably informed is required under the Texas disciplinary rules of professional conduct, and doing so is good risk management. Examine how effective engagement letters, disengagement letters, and other communications keep the client reasonably informed and engaged, while helping to control the client’s expectations, promoting effective risk management, and reducing the likelihood of legal malpractice claims.
