What I propose to do in this paper is to review various aspects of engagement or client retention agreements. As background, I have examined some of the forms' which are suggested for these agreements and a number of agreements currently in use by lawyers and law firms, principally in the Summit County, Ohio area. The purpose of this effort is to examine some key provisions of these agreements and, perhaps, suggest possible improvements.
