Helping a Public Company Complete an Audit

A delay in a regular SEC filing of a publicly-traded company can affect its stock price, jeopardize proposed transactions and spark shareholder lawsuits. When our client, the audit committee of a regional financial institution, learned that the company's auditors would not provide an opinion required for the filing of its Form 10-K without an independent investigation of an accounting dispute, it turned to Tonkon Torp for assistance.

Our attorneys helped the audit committee investigate allegations of improper accounting and conflicting reports from senior staff. Tonkon Torp's investigation and report satisfied the auditors who signed off on the Form 10-K. Tonkon Torp's prompt and expert response allowed the company to file on time and proceed with an acquisition on the desired timetable.
