Description

A partner or shareholder dispute can be costly and time consuming, especially if it ends up in court. If the falling-out escalates to this level, much of the litigation will revolve around a detailed valuation of the business. As counsel, you must have an understanding what factors must be considered when determining the true value of the business, as well as how to select an experienced appraiser that can skillfully prepare testimony to present in court. Valuation of a company for litigation purposes is more than a numbers games. Every report must provide a complete and accurate financial profile that is as unique as the company it represents and, most importantly, will hold up under scrutiny in court. Find out how to get the most value out of a valuation. Join us for this 60-minute webcast that breaks down important business valuation reporting standards in the context of partnership disputes that have devolved into litigation. Our expert faculty will discuss: - Why valuation in a business dispute is not only about the numbers - Why wide variations in assessments sometimes occur – even by the valuers - Best practices to involve the expert early and broadly in case strategy - How the process of valuation may lead to other issues - An overview of methodologies - Factoring in factors beyond the numbers – valuing how a company works - How to present valuation in litigation - Why the right expert may help to prevent expensive litigation in a business divorce - How to vet the right expert for your case - How to help your expert be great at trial
