Overview

Litigation support is a rapidly growing new service for CPAs and other financial experts. As firms of all sizes look for ways to take advantage of this new business area, financial experts must learn or enhance the skills and knowledge necessary for providing clients with superior litigation support services.

A joint project between PricewaterhouseCoopers and top experts in the field–economists, accountants, and lawyers–the Litigation Services Handbook brings you up to speed on trial preparation and testimony presentation, deposition, direct examination, and cross-examination. Newly-updated and revised with the latest information on issues and developments in the field, the Third Edition covers current environments, the process itself, different types of cases, proving damages and practical considerations of court appearances, and even the way rapidly developing technology has affected the practice of litigation services. In addition to addressing important developments affecting the accounting practice, the book examines issues raised when calculating both prejudgment and postjudgment interest on damage awards as well as relevant statutes and interest rates on damages.

Authoritative and highly practical, the Litigation Services Handbook, Third Edition is an essential guide for any financial expert building a practice in this lucrative new area, the lawyers who hire them, and litigants who benefit from their efforts.
