When measuring economic damages, the substance is just as critical as the form. A key component of the economic damages puzzle is ethics. Attorneys and the forensic accountants who support them must both be mindful of the ethical principles and considerations surrounding the calculation of economic damages. 
This course will review relevant ethical considerations and will highlight concerns regarding judgment used in the development of a damages opinion, the forensic accountants professional standards, ethical issues and considerations related to economic damages analyses, and case examples where damages misstatements were identified.
