Providing expert testimony is the moment of truth as to the reliability and credibility of a business appraiser’s opinion. What better way to prepare and defend one’s opinion than to examine, deconstruct, and discuss business valuation opinions and forensic damage calculations from recent high-profile court cases. By scrutinizing recent case law, this webinar will enable attendees to extract judicial opinions and analyses to strengthen one’s own credibility and conclusion.
In addition, this webinar will demonstrate how judicial precedent can provide insight to valuators by illuminating how various experts navigated the system, diverse facts were presented and interpreted, and how it all impacted the final court decision.
After completing this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Identify how case law impacts their business valuation conclusions
- Recognize court views of valuation theory and methods—based on recent decisions
- Articulate the rationale of the court cases discussed and understand the impact on clients and their practices
- Implement lessons from the court into their next valuation or financial damages case

This webinar is designed for financial forensic analysts, forensic operators, CPA's, valuation analysts, attorneys, and others interested in current case law
