The next installment of our Homebuilder Series webinar will discuss auditor liability and fiduciary duties. This webinar will be of particular interest to company officer and directors, as well as other personnel concerned about the quality of the external audits performed for their companies.
Please join us on Wednesday, January 14 at 12:00pm, where Litigation partner Phil Stein will touch on two issues of recurring interest to company officers and directors: the potential liability of auditors/accountants for mishandling of company audits or other engagements, and the nature and extent of the fiduciary duties that the officers and directors themselves owe to their companies. Phil will provide an overview of the state of the law as to each of these issues of concern and will also highlight case law pertinent to claims by companies against their auditors.
Phil Stein focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation. Phil represents mortgage companies, financial services companies and large national homebuilders on a broad range of issues. He devotes a substantial portion of his practice to representing originators and sellers of mortgage loans throughout the country, as they defend against loan repurchase claims made by banks and other investors.
