The official role of the valuation or financial forensic expert is to assist the trier of fact in interpreting and understanding the financial evidence. Many experts, however, are blindsided in the courtroom when they find out that their professional opinions are laden with landmines in the form of unverified evidence, unreasonable assumptions, risky leaps of faith, inappropriate protocol, and inadvertent departures from professional standards. In this webinar, Judges Gonzalez, Platt, and Yates will share the challenges that they have encountered with financial professionals and offer guidelines and approaches to solidify our opinions and persuasiveness in the legal environment.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Identify the criteria that judges use in evaluating the credibility of an expert and veracity of the expert's opinions.
- Determine and explain the legal parameters defining the role of the expert.
- Identify toxic influences that erode a financial expert's credibility.
- Identify and formulate check point tests to ensure compliance with professional standards.
- Determine and Outline the risks related to unchallenged assumptions and leaps of faith.
- Select a working protocol to facilitate objective and unbiased analysis and opinions free from the advocacy driving the legal disputes.
