The Forensic Accountant as an Intricate Part of the White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyer's Arsenal


Identification: FVC1950

We explore the various roles for forensic accountants in white collar criminal defense matters, both pre and post indictment, and how to protect their work from overreaching government investigators. From assessing financial loss under the protections of the attorney-client relationship in the midst of an active grand jury investigation, to debunking misplaced government hypotheses about revenue and expenses in the middle of trial, the forensic accountant is an invaluable member of the white collar criminal defense lawyer’s team when that relationship is properly constructed. From engagement, to trial testimony, to sentencing, this panel explores the wide ranging opportunities for forensic accountants in the white collar criminal defense space, and how to protect those engagements from some common pitfalls and misconceptions.
