Lipson Neilson Shareholder Sandra D. Glazier Awarded “2018 Distinguished Author” by Trusts & Estates Journal

Sandra D. Glazier, a Shareholder of the Lipson Neilson law firm, has been awarded 2018 Distinguished Author in the category of Thought Leadership: High Net Worth by Wealth Management’s Trusts & Estates publication, the pre-eminent peer review journal and website for wealth management professionals serving the needs of high-net-worth clients, family businesses, charitably inclined donors and non-profit corporations.

Glazier, and co-author attorney Martin Shenkman, were both awarded this distinction for their article “Drafting and Updating Your Retainer Agreements” that was published in Trusts & Estates Journal.

Glazier and Shenkman wrote this article about retention letters because they are vital to protect attorneys and define the scope and terms of engagement. According to Glazier and Shenkman, the practice of law continues to evolve and so should retention agreements. “We hoped to encourage a re-evaluation of retention agreements and recognition of the import in identifying: (1) the client, (2) engagement, and (3) conflicts of interest, as well as in ‘vetting’ clients (that is, weeding out liability and recognizing acts of procurement, which could be an indicia of undue influence) and addressing privilege and future diminished capacity issues.” Retention letters can communicate a firm’s practices, procedures, client responsibilities, and more. The authors added, “They can be a valuable form of communication, not merely a means of defining billing terms.”
