The ability to make complex ethical and business-related decisions is a crucial skill for attorneys, one that is put to task daily in the representation of one’s clients. Attorney Devika Kewalramani explains the crucial components of New York’s engagement letter rules. In the seven years since their publication, the rules still do not define what happens when a lawyer does not have an engagement letter. Kewalramani further discusses the new ethics rules that relate to attorney fees, how to avoid the engagement letter grey areas, and the best practices for compliance.
