Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Not a law book, but an approach to helping both individual accountants and the profession as a whole deal with the rising litigation against them. Among the topics are the courts' perspectives on generally accepted standards and practices, identifying what parts of an accounting practice are in most jeopardy, criteria for buying liability insurance, and the foundation for developing an ethical framework.
