RoseRyan, along with Ernst & Young and Morrison & Foerster, is presenting a free breakfast seminar, “XBRL: It’s Time to Get Real,” on May 2 in Palo Alto.

We all know that XBRL implementation can be tough—especially if you’re not crystal clear on the process, don’t know what’s possible and aren’t sure where the pitfalls are. Of course you want best practices, but who can say what they are when the rules keep changing? On top of that, maybe your limited liability is expiring—and what exactly does that mean? Perhaps most of all, what does the SEC really want?

“XBRL: It’s Time to Get Real” will give you the answers from people who’ve been toiling in the XBRL trenches and have done the sweating for you. These experts will provide concise, practical advice on key accounting, legal and audit do’s and don’ts, illustrated with plenty of real-world examples. The presenters are:

Lucy Lee, XBRL practice chief, RoseRyan: Lucy is the chief architect of RoseRyan’s XBRL practice, an elected member of the XBRL US 2012 Domain Steering Committee and a voting member of the XBRL Global Ledger Working Group of XBRL International.

David M. Lynn, partner, Morrison & Foerster: David, a leading authority on SEC matters, is co-chair of his firm’s global public companies practice and former chief counsel of the division of corporation finance at the SEC.

Natalie Zimmer, senior audit manager, Ernst & Young: Natalie, a recognized XBRL expert, advises on XBRL implementation and has presented on the subject in multiple forums.

The seminar will be held 7:30–9:30 a.m. at the Garden Court Hotel in Palo Alto. Attendees receive 1 CPE credit. Get details and register here.
