How Accounting Firms Should Deal With Clients Facing Insolvency

December 11, 2018 | 8:00am – 10:00am [with breakfast and check-in starting at 8:00am]

In light of the increasing uncertainty facing companies in various industries, accounting firms should consider how to manage clients that currently are facing (or may soon face) financial distress. Join us for a roundtable discussion on how accounting firms can "prepare for the worst" through their client engagement agreements, what firms should do when they detect warning signs of financial trouble, and how they may reduce their losses if a client becomes insolvent. 

The roundtable discussion will address the following issues, among others:

  • Drafting engagement letters with an eye toward mitigating future insolvency and bankruptcy risks.
  • Managing financial problems with your clients early on.
  • Getting paid on your outstanding invoices.
  • Issues to consider when you contemplate terminating an engagement. 
  • Minimizing preference and fraudulent transfer risks.
  • What to do if the client ends up in bankruptcy, including getting retained to provide services to a client during its bankruptcy case.
