Understanding Financial Statements for New Lawyers 2022 - 3 August 2022 (On Demand)


Getting to grips with the numbers

More often than not, financial statements related to client matters tend to come across our desks reasonably often. In some cases, this is far too often…. But they are important documents whether they refer to a clients’ trusts account, finance, share valuations, or other legal matter. These documents tell us a story about our client’s legal affairs, and when provided to us, they do require us to read through them carefully and understand the numbers. The challenge in trying to determine what the numbers mean and what they tell us about our client’s affairs; this can be a big challenge especially if you do not come from an accounting or financial background.

In this webinar we’ll provide you with a 101 on how to read financial statements and getting to grips with what it is the numbers are telling you.
