James F. Green, BBA, CPA

Jim Green is an Illinois CPA who helps people understand complex accounting principles through his writing, research, face-to-face training, and consultation.

As a partner in Arthur Andersen LLP's Professional Standards Group (Arthur Andersen’s “national office”), he developed and communicated Andersen's technical accounting positions on derivatives, hedging activities, financial instruments, securitizations, and foreign currency translation — authoring firm guidance and comment letters, participating in the U.S. and international standards-setting process, and consulting with internal and external clients.
