Livent, Inc. is a company that is very involved in the entertainment business, mainly in live theatrical productions. When dealing with a company in the entertainment industry, there are many risks that can be involved in auditing situations. A big risk that can be common is working with the higher officers of the company who are not strongly educated in the financial field. They are only familiar with the entertainment part of it and do not pay attention to a lot of the finances.

The audit partner is there to see that the company is reporting numbers correctly, legally, and ethically. They are similar because they both oversea the finances of a company. The auditor just makes sure that the CFO is approving the financial activities that he should approve. Personally, I would rather be the CFO of a company. It is a lot of responsibility but as long as you keep your company profitable while following rules and laws then you shouldn’t be in trouble. The CFO is also much more important because you oversea many people and you have to make sure that they are following rules as well. An auditor is important but if a company is doing everything legal and their numbers are correct, how important are they? Corporate executives may consider their auditors to be evil because an auditor may tell them a lot of bad news, from their numbers is off, you are doing stuff illegally, and much more negatives. An auditor is usually the one to find what the company is doing wrong whether they know it or don’t know it. I don’t feel that auditors are the ones who can change the perspective of how corporate executives feel about them. The only way this will change is if companies start reporting correctly and legally. So, it is up the company to change their own mind because the ones who feel the auditors are evil are usually the ones doing the evil acts. Another accounting firm is retained when an auditor-client conflict arises during an

Target Corporation’s (NYSE:TGT) share price declined nearly 7.5% in the last month alone, amid the potential threat of higher taxes from Donald Trump’s new administration. Aside from higher taxes, the company looks in a very solid position to expand its profitability and dividends.
BET Holdings, LLC, founded in 1990, began with a simple mission: to become the preeminent media company serving black consumers, and through the fulfilment of this mission, to create substantial value for its shareholders.

Fauntroy, and vice-president of government relations for the National Cable Television Association (NCTA), the Washington, DC based corporation used the contacts and available source information on the emerging cable television industry, and inspiration gathered on a fortuitous shared taxi ride to set the mission in motion.
In the case of Anthony, a New Jersey resident and owner of a waste disposal company in the state of New Jersey, and his two business associates, Paul and Silvio, whom suffered severe injuries due to a motor vehicle accident caused by a negligent truck driver; they have great standing to sue against the neglectful driver and the company associated with the ownership of the vehicle. Regardless of the diversity of their residency/ citizenship, the affected party can proceed to sue the corporation responsible for the damages caused by their staff and property; reason being that they are protected under the Constitution’s diversity of citizenship, and the privileges and immunities clause. Furthermore, these two constitutional clauses in addition to the commerce clause, dictate the court that the matter needs to be brought to.

In the Enron case, The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Congress conducted an investigation into Enron's collapse. The authorities re-examined the roles of corporate watchdogs, including corporate boards of directors, auditors, investment banks, credit rating agencies and lawyers. It could be that the watchdogs had too tight relations with the company's executives. That is why no one questioned the Enron's aggressive accounting strategies. To prevent such collapses, someone needs to look into the possible conflict of interest. The dilemma is that auditors should perform in the interests of the investors, but they are paid by the audited company, which makes it more difficult for them to exercise tough decisions. The auditors should not perform some particular consulting services for the firms that they audit. Another belief is that there should be more severe consequences for those committing financial crimes and causing fall of the companies.

The political lens sees an organization as “an arena for competition and conflict among individuals, groups, and other organizations whose interest and goals differ and even clash dramatically” (Ancona, Kochan, Scully, Van Maanen, & Westney, 2005: M-2, 33). It assumes that “In the political perspective, the roots of conflict lie in different and competing interests, and disagreements require political action, including negotiation, coalition building, and the exercise of power and influence, all of which recognize that rationality is local” (Ancona et al., 2005: M2, 33). I will analyze and explain the concepts within the political landscape to explain the new front end / back end structure at Dyna Corporation,
