Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) and their accounting firms must adhere to a strict set of rules in performing their professional duties. Unfortunately, many CPAs and accounting firms are either unaware of all of the rules they must follow or consciously disregard those rules when representing a client’s interests. Whether intentional or unintentional, the harm that follows from accounting malpractice (also referred to as “accounting negligence”) can have long-lasting and far-reaching effects on a client.
On behalf of businesses and individual taxpayers alike, we are currently investigating a number of accounting firms and accountants responsible for the following types of substandard care:
- Faulty certification of, or failure to properly audit, corporate financial records
- Failure to properly maintain financial records for corporate and individual clients
- Failure to supervise accounting firm employees
- Theft of client funds
- Aiding and abetting fraud or embezzlement
If you feel you are the victim of substandard or rule-violating work by an accountant or accounting firm, collect all documents (including billing statements, e-mails, and all professional work papers) related to your claim and contact us to discuss your legal rights. Our consultation is free, and you will not pay us any legal fees in a pure contingency-fee case if we are unable to reverse some or all of the harm you have suffered.
