Engagement letters help improve communication with clients, document engagements, and protect you from litigation. By clearly defining an engagement’s scope and services, you can better avoid misunderstandings.
What you should do:
- State the purpose of the engagement
- Define the scope of the engagement (specifically what you will and won’t do)
- Specify known negative conditions or adverse situations
- Note client instructions, responsibilities, deliverables and dates
- Note reliance on facts provided by client
