Standard Engagement Letter templates are not a good enough starting point

Standard engagement letter templates are a set of building blocks. But YOU are then expected to have the relevant legal, regulatory and compliance knowledge to assemble those templates into a suite of working engagement letters. These need to reflect your firm and the clients you serve so you can manage the expectations and risks of all parties. And this is all before you can even think about automating their production.

Because this is such an arduous task, most firms end up falling short of even their most basic regulatory requirements, leaving them exposed to risk. At best, they end up with overly complicated documents that are difficult to understand by the client and by everyone in the firm.

But…. they have the potential to be so much more.

The missed opportunity that most firms can’t even consider

Expertly crafted engagement letters can not only help you to meet your regulatory obligations and protect your firm from risk, but they can do so much more.

They can be used to clearly set out expectations, to help your clients become better clients and help your team to fully understand what’s expected of them too.

They can strengthen relationships through their clarity and lengthen relationships through the trust that they build. Because through these documents, you can actually demonstrate the highest levels of firm-wide, long-term, client care.

But to achieve this level, you would need a team of experts within your firm, working closely with you to produce this suite of engagement letters that reflect the changing nature of your firm, your clients and the regulatory landscape.

Unless….. that expertise was built into the engagement letters themselves.
