Accountants’ Liability

If you work in risk management or the general counsel’s office at an accounting firm, you've probably asked yourself how to manage regulatory risk associated with your increasingly global practice. How do you supervise cross-border litigation and government investigations? Are the people on the ground familiar with U.S. law?

The accountants’ liability litigation team at Hogan Lovells can bring you up to speed on answers to these questions, so as to avoid professional liability. We help implement risk management measures, and defend against regulatory investigations and professional disciplinary actions. Dispute resolution is one of our team's strong suits. We also have deep experience with trustee and receiver claims, and SEC, DOJ, PCAOB, State Boards of Accountancy, and other global boards.


Representative experience

Hogan Lovells represented a Big Four accounting firm in a series of securities-fraud class actions arising from one of the largest frauds in history.

We represented a Big Four firm in the first securities-fraud action brought by the SEC against a Big Four firm in more than 20 years.

We acted regarding claims brought against leading firms of lawyers and actuaries arising from advice given on all aspects of pension schemes.

We have handled dozens of SEC and PCAOB enforcement proceedings against accountants, and have extensive experience in every aspect of enforcement work from investigation to trial.
