Professionals, including accountants and lawyers, must follow high professional standards and often owe strict duties to their clients. When trusted professionals violate those obligations, such as through accounting errors, incorrect advice, or failure to follow industry standards, the financial impact on clients is often substantial and life altering. In many cases, it is difficult for clients to recognize that a long standing, trusted advisor has made a mistake or, worse, intentionally harmed them. Often, the underlying transactions are complex and difficult to uncover.
