  • Assessments of economic materiality for class action, regulatory and criminal matters
  • Financial statement presentation and disclosures in relation to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), and other comprehensive bases of accounting, for tax reporting purposes, and in relation to Generally Accepted Auditing Standards (GAAS)

In addition to NERA's team of experts in economics, our experts include specialists in investigative and forensic accounting, Certified Fraud Examiners, Certified Public Accountants, Chartered Accountants, and Chartered Financial Analysts.
