Master Analyst in Financial Forensics (MAFF)
Become the Master of the Field! The MAFF credential makes the statement that when it comes to financial forensics, you are the “Master” of the field.
Unlike most financial litigation training that tends to be general in scope, MAFF training, continuing education, and related resources provides attendees with the methodologies and approaches for calculating damages, financial investigative and forensic accounting techniques, skills development for communicating with judges, attorneys, and juries, and practice building strategies that are being employed by successful and emerging financial forensics analysts.
The demand for financial litigation and forensic accounting services is set to soar. The Master Analyst in Financial Forensics (MAFF) is designed to help CPAs and other financial service professionals obtain the necessary training, certification, and credibility so they can grow and thrive in these services.

The highest growth areas of financial litigation are subject to their own variables that define the consultant’s role in the matter and the scope of analysis. Further, the legal theories underlying the various types of financial litigation focus on key statutes and case law that define the scope of damages.
Taught by some of the nation’s top minds and authorities in law, economics, valuation theory, expert witnessing, and litigation support, the training expounds on the legal foundations and the strategic and communication skills required of a forensic expert, and how to apply these skills in a litigation context.
Command of these fundamental concepts are key to providing services that will withstand the challenges of the litigation environment.
