3 Master Analyst in Financial Forensics TM (MAFF TM ) Master Analyst in Financial Forensics TM (MAFF TM ) Certification Co-Sponsored by the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts and the Financial Forensics Institute TM Due to increased regulation and regulatory enforcement, as well as a record number of bankruptcies and corporate restructurings, the demand for financial forensics services is set to soar. To help CPAs and other financial service professionals obtain the necessary training, certification, and credibility so they can grow and thrive in the financial forensics area, the CTI, through its partner NACVA, offers specialized certification and training programs and the Master Analyst in Financial Forensics TM (MAFF TM ) credential. NACVA s MAFF training offers practitioners seven different specialized pathways to acquire the MAFF. These areas Bankruptcy, Insolvency, and Restructuring; Commercial Damages and Lost Profits; Business and Intellectual Property Damages; Business Valuation in Litigation; Forensic Accounting; Fraud Risk Management; and Matrimonial Litigation have common underpinnings, yet with their own unique set of dynamics. These programs are developed and presented by a team of nationally recognized financial forensics experts who are leaders in their respective fields, and unlike most financial forensics training that tends to be general in scope, our programs are a deep dive into the methodologies, approaches, trends, financial investigative techniques, communication skills, practice management, and practicebuilding strategies that are being employed by successful and emerging financial forensic analysts. The MAFF credential/ designation makes a statement that when it comes to financial forensics, credential holders are the Masters of this field. Seven Specialty Tracks to Obtain the MAFF Credential 1.

Litigation Bootcamp for Financial Experts is required training to obtain the Master Analyst in Financial Forensics (MAFF) credential. The common theme of the Bootcamp will be a case study.

The culmination of the program will be a live jury trial in which attendees work with seasoned trial attorneys and view jury deliberations. The proctored MAFF exam will be administered on the day following the jury trial. Day 1: Lost Profits and Valuation in Financial Forensics The foundation of any financial forensic expert s work in the litigation environment is the substance, depth, and credibility of the expert s underlying analysis. Taking the underlying work into the litigation environment requires that the expert have an understanding of how his or her expertise supports the legal issues and how it is effectively incorporated into the legal proceeding. In this first day of the Litigation Bootcamp for Financial Experts, we will integrate each attendee s specialty track discipline into the case study, with a focus on valuation, lost profits, and other financial issues.

The day s activities will address the strategic and tactical approaches to trial preparation. n Deliver effective testimony n Identify and respond to alternative approaches to deposition examination n Utilize deposition transcripts productively n Prepare retaining counsel for the deposition of the opposing expert n Prepare for trial Day 3: The Dynamics of Trial Expert Testimony and Juror Perspectives The culmination of the Bootcamp s activities will be a live jury trial in which attendees will serve as expert witnesses who will be presented and cross-examined by local trial lawyers. Upon conclusion of the testimony, jurors will conduct deliberations. Once the jurors have reached their verdict, they will return to the courtroom/classroom where there will be an open discussion of the trial. The jurors will provide their perspectives on the testimony and credibility of the expert witnesses. This exchange allows for an open dialogue between the attendees, jurors, and program faculty. n Prepare for trial with retaining counsel n Prepare counsel with substance for effective cross-examination of the opposing expert n Deliver credible, persuasive, and effective testimony n Survive cross-examination n Communicate effectively with judges and jurors n Explain the process that judges and jurors employ in deliberations and arriving at their verdict WHO SHOULD ATTEND: CPAs, valuation experts, economists, and other financial professionals who render services designed to assist in the resolution of legal disputes involving financial matters.
