Most of these forms and checklists are provided provided on a CD-ROM that is included with the book. Whether you are working on a specific legal or financial question or bringing in specialists in other disciplines to help you handle a client's requirements, this comprehensive guide will enable you find solutions and act as effective quarterback of an overall plan.
