Program Description

Discover how valuation analysts and CPAs can diversify their practices by increasing their skill sets to include economic damages (individual). Jeff Harwell will discuss how workflow, expert judgment, and use of databases and calculation techniques from other valuation- and accounting-related work are compatible with those needed for economic damages (individual).

Many of the same challenges and rewards that valuation analysts and CPAs face in their other work areas can be found in determining the extent of economic loss suffered by the plaintiff in cases of wrongful death, personal injury, and employment law. Jeff will cover how the economic damage model relates to discounted cash flow projections, how data fits into calculations, and how an economic damages (individual) report compares with a calculation report. The valuation analyst or CPA who is considering ways to diversify and expand their practice will receive a good feel for the work involved in economic damages (individual).
