Accounting professionals are especially susceptible to malpractice-related claims. It is imperative accountants facing legal challenges have an attorney who understands the regulatory landscape of the profession and the intricacies of the services accountants provide.
At Wood Litigation, APC, our California attorneys are experienced at representing individuals and businesses, specifically in the accounting field, in professional liability claims before the courts, regulatory bodies, and in arbitrations and mediations.
We are deeply familiar with the issues with which accounting firms and their practitioners are typically confronted and have represented companies, individuals and firms on both sides of accounting malpractice claims. When accounting fraud issues are alleged in securities-related litigation or in tax matters, we also are prepared to handle the matter – whether it is a civil or criminal case.
We are focused on each client matter, consulting with investigators, data analysis experts and forensic accountants to learn the facts to build a strong defense. Accounting cases are often document-intensive; our lawyers are adept at reviewing records effectively and efficiently and using the information garnered to craft a winning defense strategy.
Our reputation as lawyers ready to take cases to trial frequently encourages our opponents to engage in pre-trial negotiations and offer favorable settlements.
