Alternative Dispute Resolution for Accounting and Related Services Disputes

Author: Thomas R. Manisero

Tom Manisero (Partner-White Plains) co-authored “Alternative Dispute Resolution for Accounting and Related Services Disputes” in the December 2017 issue of CPA Journal. The article emphasizes that parties should attempt to resolve a dispute through “reasonable negotiations before ADR (or worse, litigation) is considered.” Tom cautions that: “Accounting firms that choose to include a mediation or arbitration clause in their engagement letters are urged to first consult their insurers. Including such a clause in an engagement letter may increase the number of disputes in the process; the total cost of resolving differences with clients should be less, however, and many relationships that would have been lost should be saved.”
