It is customary for a person seeking the services of a lawyer (lawyer) to pay a retention fee to the lawyer to see a case until its conclusion.  A preservative may be a single prepayment or a recurring payment (for example. Monthly B).  In the absence of a contrary agreement, a withholding tax is refunded if the work is not carried out.   A storage contract is an employment contract. It is between a single contract and an indeterminate job, which may be full-time or part-time.  Its distinctive feature is that the customer or customer pays in advance for the subsequent shipment of professional work. The purpose of a storage right is to ensure that the lawyer reserves time for the client in the future if their services are needed. The conservation contract can serve as the basis for authority for a lawyer. It may limit the power of a lawyer to certain tasks or services instead of giving power for general purposes. For example, when a lawyer is engaged for litigation purposes, the lawyer is generally authorized by the client to accept the delivery of documents that do not require personal follow-up by the client.
In addition to the fact that it is formally described in a conservation agreement, the granting of powers to a lawyer may be implicit, obvious or usual, by the usual practice of defence counsel when representing a client.  A conservation contract may contain other contractual provisions relating to the provision of services, or the parties may enter into additional contracts defining the other conditions of their employment relationship. A retention fee may be paid at a pre-negotiated fixed rate or at a variable hourly rate depending on the type of conservation person and also by the practice of the holder of the profession.
