Professional Responsibility: Terms and Conditions of Engagement (webinar)

We all know that client care information is required for each of our retainers with clients. We also know that sometimes practitioners forget to send out all of the required information in the form specified by the Rules, or clients deny seeing them or the documentation does not cover the issues that are likely to arise. What should you do in those circumstances? Do barristers need to send client care information even if they have an instructing solicitor? If so, what should they look like?
