Letters of Engagement are an essential requirement before embarking on a new piece of work for a client. They set out the legal relationship between you and your client and help to protect your firm against claims for professional negligence in the event of any future misunderstandings.

We have provided a checklist of key points to consider when drafting your letter of engagement, including comments on why these are so important and what the potential consequences can be if overlooked.  This checklist is not intended to be exhaustive as all letters of engagement will vary, however you may wish to download it as an aide-mémoire when drafting/reviewing your letters of engagement in future.
