5. Expert Witness Testimony and Litigation Support
Today's legal team needs effective forensic accountants more than ever. In addition, the forensic accountant, acting as an "Expert Witness" must possess the verbal skills to simply and factually relate their findings to a jury made up of non-financial laypersons. Astute legal professionals realize that their litigation support and expert witnesses must not only be seasoned accountants who know their way around a balance sheet, but effective communicators as well. .
