New York, NY, October 23, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: “Legal Series for 2010: Auditors’ Liability - How to Avoid Casualties”. This two-hour event is scheduled on January 26, 2011 at 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET.
Fallout from the financial meltdown has made its way to the auditors of failed institutions. Stepped up enforcement activities by SEC and PCAOB have driven auditors to rethink how they work with their clients. Many are now on the brink of facing litigation arising from their client’s bankruptcy or having to issue a restatement of the financials. People are asking the question: why didn’t the auditor spot holes in the financials sooner? As the scope of auditors’ liability broadens, even private litigators and investors may have the ability to pursue lawsuits against auditors.
The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of speaker experts for one of the much-anticipated webcasts comprising its 2010 Legal Series. They will form part of a comprehensive, 2-hour Live discussion on auditor liability claims.
Key topics that will be covered:
- Regulatory agency cases
- Congressional involvement
- Protecting yourself from litigation
- Up to the minute regulatory updates
This is an event for auditors and attorneys representing accounting firms. Advanced registration is recommended as space is limited. Significant discounts apply for early registration.
