From selection of the right forensic accountant all the way through trial, the interaction between lawyers and forensic accountants can make or break a case. This webinar will discuss the practical considerations and dynamics between the two types of professionals during all phases of a case. Defining their roles in the midst of the ever-changing needs of a case can be challenging, and lawyers and forensics accountants must work side by side in detecting and proving fraud. The speakers will address issues arising in the relationship between lawyers and forensic accountants during the discovery process and the settlement process, in preparing the expert witness, and ultimately in collaborating yet maintaining their separate roles at trial.
