June 7, 2011

This seminar has been postponed until further notice.

In today’s environment, businesses need lawyers and accountants to work together effectively in a variety of litigation scenarios, including civil damages determinations, business or economic loss valuations, post-merger equity and earn-out calculations, and evaluation of fraud. But how do you create an effective litigation strategy for your business when lawyers and accountants don’t always speak the same language? Please join us to learn how you can bring your lawyers and accountants together to identify business opportunities, spot potential problems, and focus your financial story to achieve litigation results.

  • Getting on the Same Page: What do lawyers need to know about forensic accountants, and vice versa, to maximize the working relationship?
  • Telling Your Financial Story: How you and your lawyers and accountants can work together to present your story clearly, honestly, and effectively to a judge or jury.
  • The New Rules of Federal Evidence: How the new Rule 26, effective December 1, 2010, affects lawyer and accountant communications.

Other Topics Include:

  • What is a forensic accountant, and when do businesses need them?
  • Working with in-house accountants as potential witnesses.
  • How to avoid the pitfalls of accounting jargon vs. legalese.
