Accounting Literacy for Corporate Attorneys and Litigators

Let's just admit it - lawyers are usually not numbers people, and certainly not accountants. For this session, two very experienced CPAs give lessons on how to navigate and understand the types of financial information regularly generated by corporate clients or presented for analysis during litigation. For more than 25 years, Jay Sickler, CPA, has specialized in providing Financial Forensics and Business Valuation services. He will talk about the types of financial information he analyzes for the work he does for his clients, what kinds of financial and accounting information to request, and how to assess the quality of what is produced. Sarah Padfield, CPA, has over 10 years of experience in public accounting. Her career has focused on the preparation of financial statements that are in accordance with GAAP. She will share how significant disclosure requirements have changed recently, and what to be on the lookout for when trying to read a set of financial statements. Tim Snider, a litigation partner with Stoel Rives, will moderate. This program will be specifically designed to enhance a lawyer's understanding of a client's financial data.
