Financial Reporting Expert Witnesses
Financial reporting expert witness candidates typically have an advanced degree and expertise in accounting or forensic accounting. An accounting expert witness needs to possess the ability to provide expert testimony in a manner such that a judge and jury can understand the evidence. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, legal counsel may request a financial reporting specialist with prior expert witness testimony experience.
Financial information is reported in a structured, standard manner and typically includes four basic financial statements: balance sheet, income statement, statement of changes in equity, and cash flow. International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are a set of high-quality global accounting standards that specify how companies must maintain and report accounts. Litigation support services by a financial reporting expert could include financial statement or accounting records review, opposing counsel deposition, expert report, expert opinion, dispute resolution and/or courtroom testimony. In addition, clients may seek a financial reporting professional or forensic accountant for pre-litigation consulting expert work.
