Description

The financial expert's litigation 'bible', updated and expanded

The updated Litigation Services Handbook is an indispensable reference for financial experts offering litigation support services. The text is a robust framework for all aspects of the litigation process, written by experts drawing upon years of institutional knowledge, experience, and techniques. It can be used alone or in conjunction with Litigation Services Handbook, Fifth Edition. A wide variety of cases illustrate important concepts, and in-depth, actionable coverage spans trial preparation, testimony, deposition, investigation, and more. This update includes the latest procedures and changes to the law, and a discussion on emerging technology explores its impact on the financial expert's practice. Two new chapters have been added to provide additional insight into the accountant's role in litigation, the the focus on investigation makes this book a highly practical reference for any practitioner in the field.

The increased need for financial witnesses and consultants to litigators has created plentiful opportunity for accountants, economists, and other practitioners. This book provides clear, comprehensive guidance for each step of the litigation process, to help practitioners enhance their practice in the courtroom and beyond.

  • Leverage financial expertise to provide litigation support services
  • Successfully prove damages with effective investigation techniques
  • Maintain authority while presenting accurate, thorough, and eloquent testimony
  • Get up to date on new technology and Sarbanes-Oxley implementation

Litigation support requires a specific skill set and knowledge base, some of which may fall outside of everyday procedure, and all of which continue to evolve with new procedures, tools, and methods. Litigation Services Handbook, 2016 Cumulative Supplement provides the most up-to-date case law and best practices financial experts need to know.
