Last updated on January 12, 2023 / By 

A legal engagement letter is a document that outlines the terms of a legal relationship between a client and a lawyer or law firm. It should be read carefully and understood fully before signing. 

The letter typically includes details such as the scope of the legal services to be provided, the fees and costs associated with the engagement, and any potential conflicts of interest. 

It may also include details about the lawyer’s responsibilities, such as maintaining client confidentiality, and the client’s responsibilities, such as providing relevant information and cooperating with the lawyer. If you have any questions or concerns about the letter, it is important to raise them with your lawyer before signing.
