Accountants and Auditors Defense

Kramer Levin is a leader in the field of accountants and auditors defense. Our firm has a long history of successfully representing accountants, auditors and their firms as well as corporations and their officers and directors in civil and criminal state and federal court litigation, in regulatory investigations and in government enforcement proceedings. We have defended clients in some of the best-known accounting cases over the years, from Lehman Brothers and Enron to WorldCom and Parmalat.

We have extensive experience advocating for clients before federal government and regulatory agencies including the SEC, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), the IRS and various state agencies and accountancy boards throughout the United States. We have handled numerous high-profile securities class actions, international cases and professional liability matters, and we have defended foreign clients subject to regulatory and legal actions in the United States. Our team has achieved favorable results for clients in cases alleging negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, ethics violations and other claims of wrongdoing involving accounting and auditing practices and tax work, including tax shelters.

Clients also rely on us for advice on issues that include accounting-related corporate governance matters, regulatory compliance and disclosure obligations, insurance coverage, audit committee relationships with independent auditors, conflicts of interest, accounting errors and irregularities, and internal accounting-related investigations.
