A retainer contract is an employment contract for hire. This is a single contract of indefinite duration that can be full-time or part-time.  Its distinguishing feature is that the client or client pays in advance for professional work to be specified later. The purpose of a retainer tax is to ensure that the lawyer reserves time for the client in the future if his services are necessary. Retainer`s agreement can serve as a basis of authority for a lawyer. It may limit the authority of a lawyer to certain tasks or services instead of giving authority for general purposes. For example, when a lawyer is hired for judicial purposes, the lawyer is normally authorized by the client to accept service of documents that do not require personal service on the client during the dispute. In addition to the formal description of a retainer agreement, the attribution of a client`s power to a lawyer may be implicitly, obviously or habitually, by the lawyer`s normal practice when representing a client.  A retainer agreement may contain other contractual provisions relating to the provision of services, or the parties may possibly conclude additional contracts defining the other terms of their employment relationship. Retainer fees can be paid at a fixed rate, negotiated in advance or at a variable hourly rate, depending on the nature of the resonater and also the practice of maintaining the profession. It is customary for a person who uses the services of a lawyer (lawyer) to pay a Retainer Fee to the lawyer to conduct a case until its conclusion.  A didiser can make a one-time deposit or a recurring payment (e.g.
monthly).  In the absence of a different agreement, retainer fees may be reimbursed if the work is not performed.  . . . .
