Monthly Retainer

0:00A retainer agreement is a work for hire contract. It falls between a one-time contract and full-time
0:06employment. Its distinguishing feature is that the employer pays in advance for work
0:11to be specified later. Additional contracts regarding the performance of this work may
0:16also apply. It is common for a person seeking the services
0:20of a lawyer to pay a retainer to the lawyer, to see a case through to its conclusion. A
0:26retainer can be a single advance payment or a recurring payment.
0:30A retainer fee can be paid on a fixed, pre-negotiated rate or on a variable hourly rate depending
0:36on the nature of retainer and also, the practice of the lawyer/advocate being retained. Both
0:42models exist in the industry. The purpose of a retainer fee is to ensure payment for
0:47future services or work to be rendered. Absent an agreement to the contrary, a retainer fee
0:53is refundable if the work is not performed. Retainer is the basis of authority for an
0:59advocate. It limits the authority because it is not for all general purposes for all
1:04time. It is therefore specific in nature e.g. during litigation the advocate is authorized
1:10by the client to accept service of proceedings that do not require personal service on behalf
1:15of client. This kind of authority can either be expressed, implied, apparent or usual through
1:21the usual practice of the advocate while pursuing the instructions of the client.
