Perhaps I’ve been lucky, but all but one project in my 20 years of experience.

3/3 for me so far. its been good

10 years I’ve done 30+ projects and all have delivered significant value. Never had a client be overall unhappy with a project, just asking for more after we go live

Consulting Agreement v. Engagement Letter

A prospective client sent me a generic consulting agreement to sign. I have not done that before but always use our own engagement letter. I find nothing objectionable in their consulting agreement but I worry that it may hurt the client if an argument can be made that a consultant is not necessarily an attorney and that they are waiving protections of attorney client privilege or attorney work product.

Am I overthinking this or is my gut right?
