In some cases, the customer may not be the one paying the replacement bill. This can happen, for example. B if you represent a child, but the parent pays the bill. In this case, the confidentiality agreement, to which the duty of confidentiality is due, should be defined and solicitor-client privilege must be explained. (c) Amendment: Unless otherwise stated in this Agreement, any amendment or amendment to this Agreement (. B, for example, changing the services to be provided) only has effect if it is signed in writing and by both parties, unless otherwise stated in this agreement. A written engagement agreement can protect both the lawyer and the client. It makes the relationship clear to the client, helps the client appreciate and take seriously the lawyer`s work, and recalls the agreement and the extent of the work that needs to be done in the event of a dispute later. I retain the right to digitally block or protect my intellectual property (including images, content or other works) that are created under this agreement to protect my intellectual property rights. Please note that if this contract is terminated, I am not required to provide you with intellectual property. If you do not make the payment as requested in this agreement, I can terminate that contract, in which case there will be no license and I am entitled to sell or concede the use of that intellectual property to another person. If clients do not return an engagement agreement, it can cause potential problems and confusion as to whether you are really their lawyer. To combat this, if you sign the commitment agreement to the customer instead of having them signed while they are in your office, you should specifically specify that the provisions (including the tax) are valid only if the contract is signed within a specified time frame and specify that if the agreement (and the retention tax) is not received within that time frame.
You do not have to represent the customer. It may be advisable to continue a letter without commitment after the deadline has expired. It is important to set expectations. The customer gets the certainty of knowing when a service is finished and how much it costs.
