When the Stakes are High … Gallion & Spielvogel LLP

Accounting practices and the reporting of financial results are often the source of disagreements with shareholders and government regulators.

  • Did someone in the company deliberately change financial reports in order to manipulate the stock market?
  • Are funds being transferred to various accounts within and outside the company without proper authorization?
  • Are there simply too many accounting discrepancies to be dismissed as “mistakes”?
  • Are stock options and other executive compensation (such as perquisites associated with living expenses and travel) handled with strict compliance to regulations and compensation agreements?
  • Is the board of directors kept fully informed about executive compensation and business finances? Are the outside directors taking their oversight commitments seriously?
