In the CPATrendlines article “The Four Hottest Areas in Litigation Consulting,” law firm marketing consultant Larry Bodine reported results from BTI Consulting’s Annual Study of Corporate Counsel.  According to the study, the four top areas where lawyers “can earn top dollar from corporate clients with litigation” are:

  • Commercial litigation
  • Employment litigation
  • IP litigation
  • Securities litigation

“If lawyers can cash in, so can the CPAs who advise them,” says CPATrendlines editor Rick Telberg.” The same can be said for the “business appraisers who advise them.” Valuations are often relevant in cases involving damages, shareholder dissent and oppression, and infringement of trade secrets, trademarks, and copyrights.
