Accounting Liability Issues
Analysis Group brings the appropriate balance of litigation experience and technical expertise to accounting liability issues, to which we apply a broad range of analytical and investigative techniques.
Our affiliates – some of whom have worked for the SEC, FASB, and PCAOB – provide expertise in assessing specialized issues such as accounting for derivatives, tax effects of accounting decisions, and corporate governance.
We have examined many complex accounting liability issues, including whether:
- Financial statements complied with GAAP and/or contract terms, including debt covenant ratios
- Information suggesting an imminent bankruptcy was publicly available or concealed
- Circumstances leading up to financial misstatements were consistent with fraud
- Post-closing adjustments were properly calculated in purchase price disputes
