What is a retainer?
The retainer is a signed agreement between you and the client that confirms the terms of the engagement. It is useful as it sets out the expectations for the file to prevent misunderstandings down the road. It is usually signed during or just after the initial client meeting and covers issues like:
- Fee structure
- Deposit amounts
- Provided documents
