Litigation, Securities Litigation, Securities Enforcement, and Investigations + White Collar Defense
San Francisco, May 4, 2005 – Morrison & Foerster has announced that its Litigation Department will formalize and expand its existing forensic accounting capabilities by forming a Forensic Accounting Services Group. Eric Roberts, who is a Certified Public Accountant and a Certified Fraud Examiner, will serve as Director of the group. Mr. Roberts specializes in cases involving the securities laws and in providing assistance with internal investigations.
"Forensic accountants will add value to Morrison & Foerster’s accounting and financial related matters by assisting in audit committee and SEC investigations, identifying and interpreting financial and accounting matters, evaluating expert reports, and consulting on Sarbanes-Oxley and internal control issues," says Mr. Roberts.
This area of expertise is not new to Morrison & Foerster. The firm has had forensic accounting resources for several years, but with the changing corporate culture associated with Sarbanes Oxley, the firm has decided to formalize its in-house accounting consulting function. "The formation of the Forensic Accounting Service Group allows us to expand these services to bring additional value to both litigation and corporate clients of the firm," says Lori Schechter, Chair of the Litigation Department.
