We are now taking applications from senior associates for the 2013 Prospective Partners Program (PPP). We are also looking for In-House Counsel to participate in the program.
Senior associates interested in applying for the program must submit an application by October 21, 2013. Please click here for the application requirements and instructions.
Any In-House Counsel interested in participating in the program should click here for more information.
The objective of the PPP is to identify, either through nomination or application, 6-8 senior associates or of counsel at major law firms who are “on-deck,” i.e. within 12-18 months of consideration for partnership, and to introduce them to and allow them to individually pitch a similar (or greater) number of senior In-House Counsel (GCs or others with outside counsel hiring authority). The participants would not necessarily be pitching for specific work or projects but for the opportunity to get to know and show potential clients what they can do. There will also be a mentorship aspect where senior associates will be paired with partner mentors.
Here is a media alert we are passing along for those who may be interested in a CLE program about forensic accounting being held in NYC on October 24. Registration information appears below, towards the end. Please direct all questions to the conference organizers.
Lawyers and accountants to strengthen crime-fighting partnerships
FORENSIC ACCOUNTING CONFERENCE OCT. 24 in NYC
NEW YORK (September 30, 2013) – Forensic accountants investigate an ever-increasing list of financial crimes that includes money laundering, Ponzi schemes, embezzlement, insurance, procurement and securities fraud. Actively sought out by the legal profession, these certified public accountants have advanced knowledge of accounting and data-analysis techniques and are often deemed part investigator, part auditor, part attorney and part accountant.
The New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants (NYSSCPA) and its Foundation for Accounting Education (FAE) aims to expand the emerging business understandings between attorneys and accountants at its half-day “Forensic Accounting Conference for Attorneys and CPAs” October 24 in New York City.
“The forensic accounting field is a mature field with plenty of business opportunities for CPAs and attorneys alike,” said Yigal Rechtman, CPA, CFE and the Forensic conference chairman. “One important way to nurture the healthy relationship between the two professions is for us to get together and learn from one another about the unique characteristics of each profession.”
The agenda for the event – to be held at the Citi Conference Center, 388 Greenwich Street, 3rd Floor – will focus on 1) accountants’ level of services, 2) lost profit damages, 3) a primer on preventive and detective internal controls, and 4) best practices and challenges in forensic computing.
Key presenters scheduled to speak at the conference include:
· David G. Trachtenberg, Esq., Founding Partner, Trachtenberg Rodes & Friedberg LLP
· Vincent Gaudiuso, CPA, MST, Quality Control Partner, Buchbinder Tunick & Company, LLP
· Gilbert Backenroth, Esq., Partner, Hahn & Hessen, LLP
· John M. Bonora ASA, CPA/ABV/CFF, CFE, MBA, Founding Partner, Fairfield Forensic and Valuation Services, LLC
Rising forensic, business valuation, accounting and legal professionals at all levels of experience are invited to attend this program that will help develop core areas of competency and expertise. Attorneys who register and attend will be eligible for four (4) Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits just as accountants who attend will receive four (4) Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits. For more information please call 800.537.3635 or to register go here.
