Overcoming the Obstacles of Legal Accounting

Compared to a typical small business, the accounting requirements at law firms are unique. The penalties for violations are much worse than a slap on the wrist or even a big fine — accounting infractions can lead to disbarment. This area requires a “zero tolerance for error” policy in your firm and the knowledge to support it.

In Overcoming the Obstacles of Legal Accounting, you’ll learn the fundamentals of both business accounting and trust (IOLTA) accounting, enabling you to confidently overcome any obstacle you might face.

Learning Objectives:
– Identify what is unique about legal accounting
– Determine the three basics of IOLTA bookkeeping
– Describe the top legal accounting challenges and solutions
