A representation agreement is the glue that holds the client – lawyer relationship together and dictates how they will work together. Without a carefully prepared and executed representation agreement both parties are at risk. This interactive virtual immersive series will explore ways of drafting ethical and profitable representation agreements that instill the client with trust and confidence in your services, set a roadmap for the case, and protect all parties in the event of a disagreement. You don’t have to be an ethics master or a contracts guru to have a wonderful fee agreement. Join us every Friday for live, virtual one-hour sessions, where we discuss immigration law engagement agreements and dissect common clauses and improve them.
This is a group learning opportunity, a safe place where we share openly about how we do business in order to improve. Connect with colleagues and learn from their mistakes and talents, as well as from faculty, Charity Anastasio, AILA Ethics and Practice Counsel.
