Mendes Weed, LLP represents accountants involved in malpractice cases.
Accountants must follow Generally Accepted Auditing Standards (GAAS) and General Accepted Account Principles (GAAP). In addition, CPAs or accountants who practice before the Internal Revenue Service are regulated by the Office of Professional Responsibility or OPR.
Mendes Weed, LLP has experience representing accountants before OPR and in civil court. Even though accountants may take steps to provide competent accounting services that are in line with any relevant regulations, accountants may find themselves facing a lawsuit or complaint. In these cases, it is important to meet with counsel right away to discuss the facts and applicable law of your case.
Often times, a client may not like the result that occurs at the end of an IRS audit, or perhaps they are unhappy with the amount of their tax liability. However, said results or tax liabilities may not be the fault of the accountant. If litigation is imminent, it is important to know your rights and options right away. Mendes Weed, LLP has experience with tax law-related matters as well as the law as it relates to accountants and is in a unique position to offer assistance to accountants who may be facing litigation or disciplinary action.
If you are an accountant and have questions or concerns as they pertain to this topic, we hope you will contact our office to schedule a consultation.
