A Letter of Closure for All the Right Reasons

Using a letter of closure at the end of a client engagement varies greatly firm to firm — and at times among lawyers within the same firm. Among those who don't use them, the excuses I hear include, “We do a lot of flat-fee, in-and-out kinds of things (simple wills or small business formations) and the effort simply isn’t worth it.” Or, “Most of our work is for repeat clients and we’re certainly not about to say good-bye to them.” Or even, “These matters never really close.”
