January 2014

James Thurston (Partner-Chicago) and Peter Larkin (Partner-White Plains) were recently interviewed by Amy Waldron, CPA, a risk control consulting director at CNA Insurance, regarding CPAs serving on boards. In the article, “Consider this before serving on a board,” she noted that the role and responsibilities of a board member significantly differ from those of a CPA in public practice. Jim and Peter, who defend claims against external board members and accountants, shared their insights on how CPAs could reduce the risks associated with board service.

The interview, cited in the AICPA’s CPA Letter Daily, appeared in the January 2014 edition The Journal of Accountancy.
