The liability exposure of accountants has widened dramatically over the past decade in the wake of numerous front-page corporate and financial scandals.
PLI’s Accountants’ Liability has been the reliable and readable resource that accountants have turned to for guidance on how they can meet their professional responsibilities, comply with relevant rules, and avoid the increased number of legal land mines. Accountants see clearly the trouble they can get into when they deal with financial statements, fail to perform contracted services, fail to uncover clients’ wrongful actions, act as business consultants, offer tax-related services, misstate material facts, and fail to follow professional standards.
Accountants’ Liability also provides attorneys with the legal, strategic, and tactical knowledge they need to prove (or successfully defend against) claims against accountants such as breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, securities claim fraud, common law fraud, civil RICO actions, as well as practice and ethical violations.
Updated at least once a year, Accountants’ Liability is an essential guide for accountants, auditors, and attorneys, as well as a useful reference for insurance professionals.
[Accountants’ Liability provides] a splendid analysis of the current environment affecting accountants’ liability … a landmark authority.”
