Lee Feldman and Christian Atwood co-authored “Negotiating Sell-Side Engagement Letters” in Buyouts Magazine, where they provide a checklist of key issues for investment bank engagement letters to address in order to ensure that sponsors, portfolio companies and bankers structure their relationship in a manner that is fair and beneficial to all.  The article explains how parties involved can avoid the common pitfalls of vague, one-size-fits-all letters, including misaligned incentives and unclear relationships and obligations.
