    [Abstrak]

    This
    study investigates whether the association between financial reporting risk and
    audit fees changed during 2000–2003: a time period marked by momentous and
    historic events for auditors. We find a positive statistically and economically
    significant relationship between financial reporting risk and audit fees paid
    to Big 4 auditors. More importantly, we predict and find that the relation
    between financial reporting risk and audit fees strengthened significantly in
    2002 and 2003, consistent with a shift in the way auditors priced risk, likely
    in response to the events surrounding the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Finally,
    we provide evidence that a commercially developed, comprehensive risk measure
    effectively proxies for an element of risk beyond what has traditionally been
    captured by various risk measures in audit fee models: namely, the risk that
    financial statements have been intentionally misstated. We believe this risk
    measure will be of interest to future researchers.
