Introduction to Financial Litigation
Money drives the economy. Disagreements about money lead to lawsuits and drive the legal system. Lawsuits involving money create opportunities for financial professionals to render valuable services to the legal community in the area of dispute resolution. Contractual disputes, employment disputes, marital dissolution, patent infringement, copyright and trademark disputes, and financial misappropriation can typically be resolved only with directive input from the financial professionals. Not many years ago this world of financial litigation was the Wild, Wild West in which there were not many guidelines and the professionals shot from the hip. Today, financial litigation consists of numerous related and well evolved disciplines supported by research, data and empirical evidence, and governed by accepted approaches, methodologies, and professional standards. 
NACVA’s MAFF curriculum surveys the environment and each of the primary financial specialties: Business Damages, Intellectual Property Damages, Matrimonial Litigation, Business Valuation, Fraud, Bankruptcy Insolvency and Restructuring, and Computer Forensics. In this webinar we will address an overview of the financial litigation world and highlights of financial professional’s role and core forensic skills in litigation.
How You Will Benefit
After completing this course, attendees will be able to:
  • List the primary areas of litigation in which financial professionals can be key participants in the resolution process
  • Explain the challenges faced by financial professionals and approaches to being most effective
  • Describe the various roles that a financial professional can assume in the litigation process
  • Outline the key legal concepts and professional standards that govern the financial litigation professional’s work

Understanding Financial Litigation—Certificate of Educational Achievement
A Certificate of Educational Achievement (CEA) in Financial Litigation will be awarded to course attendees who successfully complete and pass a short quiz administered at the conclusion of each day.

While the CEA is a valuable recognition of educational achievement that can enhance your professional development, there is no professional or other credential associated with the certificate, and certificate holders may not claim to be certified, licensed, accredited, or registered to engage in a specific occupation or profession. 

It makes no claims as to your proficiency in conducting any specific task or job related to the training. Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit is only earned through attendance at the course and complying with daily attendance verification. Additional CPE is not awarded for obtaining the CEA. The daily quizzes are based on the educational content and learning objectives of the course.
