An engagement letter is a legally binding agreement that outlines the nature of the relationship between the lawyer and the client. It sets the terms of representation, including the type of work to be done, when the payment is due and whether the agreement is based on an hourly rate, a lump sum or a contingency tax. In essence, an engagement letter is a contract between the lawyer and the client or clients. When customers and businesses experience changes, challenges or conflicts that significantly influence the purpose of this agreement and/or our relationship, the client and the company agree to consider our concerns in an intentional and targeted manner by using (personally, by phone or videoconference) the uncomy approach and process found in The Dynamic Agreement Dialogue™1. We are committed to addressing change, challenges and conflicts in a way that responds and serves the world we want to live in, the purpose of our Convention and the principles and principles set out in the Foundation`s statement. We believe that team collaboration in search of long-lasting, enjoyable and productive relationships and businesses is more useful for people exploring an agreement than approaching a meeting between adversaries who are trying to gain advantage over each other or avoid being disadvantaged by them. That we always act in harmony with the world in which we want to live, the values, principles and motivations that are acceptable to us together and the stated purpose of this agreement. That we act with integrity with ourselves and towards each other, that we connect compassion and empathy for each other and the challenges we face, that we engage with each other with respect and kindness, and that we strive to be useful to each other and to those who are affected by this agreement, and that we cannot do harm in all our words and deeds.
