Business valuation professionals often find themselves drawn into disputes over the value of business interests. Minority and oppressed shareholder disputes, damage to business value, eminent domain, and failed business combinations are some of these situations calling for the expertise of the seasoned business valuation analyst. These Business Valuation in Litigation Webinars focus on the dynamics of business valuation conclusions and calculations in the context of litigation, controlling professional standards, notable case law, differing approaches to reporting in litigation, traditional and situation-specific standards of value, and other key issues impacting business valuation in litigation.
In these Webinars, attendees will gain an understanding of the legal environment in which valuation experts practice and the practical application of business valuation in various types of legal disputes. Attendees will also expand their knowledge of professional standards and focus on developmental and reporting standards as they apply under court rules and procedures. The Webinars will also focus on the importance of site visits, tips and techniques to employ when reviewing the opposing expert's report, why a critique of the opposing expert may not be enough, and what to do when the opposing expert is bound by different standards. Discussion will also address how to assist counsel with document requests and how to resolve issues dealing with a counselor who doesn't understand business valuation.
After completing this session, attendees will be able to:
- Identify standards of value and approaches peculiar to shareholder disputes and other related litigation-based valuations
