Emerging Challenges Facing US Accounting Firms – Chicago

The legal, regulatory and political environment facing accounting firms in the United States remains in flux. Courts issued a number of significant rulings in 2010, with new cases and regulatory developments already in the pipeline for 2011. The banking crisis grew in intensity, threatening the firms with new and potentially significant exposures. On top of all this, Congress enacted the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, an historic piece of legislation that mandates a host of rule-making proceedings of substantial interest to the firms.

Please join us for a discussion of these topics:

  • 2010 in Review – Significant developments affecting accounting firms
  • The Banking Crisis – Will accounting firms be targeted and what are the key open questions that will be resolved?
  • The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act – Mayer Brown Partner Andrew Pincus discusses the political environment facing accounting firms and the potential for changes in the regulations affecting their operations
