Tracy Richelle High and Adrienne Harris Co-Author Article on Corporate Accounting Fraud for PLI Course Handbook

July 2011

Ms. High and Ms. Harris co-authored an article titled, “Corporate Accounting Fraud in 2010 and 2011: Highlighted SEC Activity and Whether to Hire Outside Counsel When Conducting an Internal Investigation,” published earlier this month in the Practising Law Institute handbook for its seminar, “Basic Accounting for Lawyers 2011: What Every Practicing Lawyer Needs to Know.” The article provided an overview of recent federal lawsuits and administrative proceedings brought by the SEC, and also identified critical issues for internal corporate counsel to consider in determining whether to engage outside counsel to assist with an internal investigation. On July 7, Ms. High conducted a panel on the same subjects as part of the seminar.
