Contracts and agreements are frequently reviewed from a legal perspective alone. However, agreements often include accounting terminology, financial statements, financial reporting requirements, and financial projections; details that are well understood by accountants. As a result, this can leave agreements open to misinterpretation or to be targeted for fraud.
Lisa Majeau Gordon, FCPA, FCA, CA·IFA, CFE, CFF of MNP LLP will join us this coming February to present a webinar entitled, “Preventing Fraud and Disputes in Contracts and Agreements“. Explore 4 key stages during the lifecycle of an agreement. Consider where an accounting perspective can complement a legal review. Errors and omissions can easily contribute to disputes and litigation. Therefore, attendees will review real-life examples to understand what went wrong and how issues could have been avoided.
