Presentation:
Forensic accounting applies accounting to the investigation and establishment of evidence in a court of law. This intersection of the legal system with accounting adds layers of complexity in dealing with certain circumstances. Is it necessary to call in a forensic accountant or should you deal with the situation yourself? How would you handle potential evidence? Your forensic accountant is not your attorney so do you need to be wary of your conversations with him or her. There is attorney client privilege but what about accountant client privilege? What are the legal traps that you may encounter when dealing with a situation that could result in litigation. Join us for a discussion of what you should expect from your forensic accountant.
