Friday, Oct 05 2012

This program provides a one-day crash course in understanding the legal impact of business operations on your individual and corporate clients, providing important insights into their health, value and future stability. The principles are constant and apply to family businesses as well as multinational companies.

Ed Adams will deliver specific, practical skills to help you identify RED FLAGS before they become issues for corporate governance, shareholders or the courts following the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. You will learn:

• Practical techniques for reading a balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows — helping you to spot vital financial and legal issues.

• The risk and return model on how stocks and bonds are priced, and the effective and ethical use of financial leveraging.

• An examination of the various aspects of the significant financial reform legislation including disclosure, corporate governance and executive compensation requirements and changes to exemption registration requirements.

• two ethics case studies in the context of financial accounting — one relating to Enron, the second relating to stock option backdating — asking whether the attorneys involved potentially violated the rules of professional responsibility.
