The program will be taught by two forensic accountants who are both Certified Fraud Examiners and Certified Public Accountants with advanced certifications in financial forensics. They use a case study that incorporates many of the investigative projects they have worked on over several years. The case study includes a full set of financial statements, including footnote disclosures. (Participants attending the program will need to have a copy of the case study financial statements at the program to derive the maximum benefit from the program.)
The program provides special emphasis on "financial shenanigans" - ways in which Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") might be manipulated to create misstated financial statements - as well as practical suggestions on how to find misstatements in financial statements of both public companies and medium sized, family owned businesses.
The program is ideal for corporate attorneys, trial lawyers, bankruptcy counsel, family law practitioners and general counsel.
