LITIGATION RISK is an assessment of the likelihood or probability that legal action may be taken, e.g. auditors may encounter an unacceptable level of litigation risk on an assignment where the client has possibly been involved with fraudulent financial reporting.

ANALYTICAL PROCEDURE is a comparison of financial statement amounts with an auditor's expectation. An example is to compare actual interest expense for the year (a financial statement amount) with an estimate of what that interest expense should be. The estimate can be found by multiplying a reasonable interest rate times the average balance of interest bearing debt outstanding during the year (the auditor's expectation). If actual interest expense differs significantly from the expectation, the auditor explains the difference in audit documentation.
