On February 14, 2018, McCausland Keen + Buckman's Marc Maser and Garth Hoyt collaborate with Rainer & Company's William Donahue for a three-pronged presentation relating to audit response letters. Their discussion provides participants with the necessary steps and considerations when preparing an audit response letter. Topics covered include:
- auditor standards for ascertaining and reporting loss contingencies;
- the American Bar Association's (ABA) Statement of Policy governing lawyers' response to audit requests from accountants; and
- the impact that legal principles of attorney-client privilege and the work-product doctrine have on what should be contained in the audit response letter.
This program takes place in the offices of McCausland Keen + Buckman from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM.
