  • Free Wi-Fi: A Client Convenience that Could Upend a Practice

    Most retail centers offer free wireless, and consumers have come to expect free customer Wi-Fi wherever they go. It’s handy and flexible.

CPA firms are often uncertain about how to respond to subpoenas because they also need to comply with a number of rules and regulations that are intended to protect client confidentiality.
