Managing the Malpractice Maze.

"The AICPA management of an accounting practice committee issued Managing the Malpractice Maze, a guide to help practitioners cope with the explosion in malpractice litigation.

The book, by Mark F. Murray, JD, alerts CPAs to the full extent of malpractice litigation against accountants, addresses strategies for reducing the likelihood of claims and improves the chances of a successful defense if a claim is brought. It includes practical information such as identifying and screening high-risk clients, engagements and industries; drafting effective engagement letters; and choosing malpractice insurance carriers and policies best suited to the firm's needs. It also features a 10-step plan to follow when a claim is brought. The appendices include sample engagement letters and engagement checklists.

Managing the Malpractice Maze (product no. 090380) is available for $35 per copy. Call the AICPA order department at (800) 334-6961 [(800) 248-0445 in New York State].
