Avoiding Negligence Claims


It doesn’t matter what is stated on your fee invoices. It’s more important what is in your working papers and correspondence files. True or False?

The answer is ‘False’.

The best advice is to make sure your fee notes match the scope of the engagement as embellishment could result in fraud risks.
