Financial Poise


This series of webinars teaches how commercial litigators use valuation experts in commercial disputes.

Valuation is used by market participants to determine the price they are willing to pay or receive to transact a sale of a security, a business, or any other asset. The same techniques are used to determine the price a party is willing to pay or receive to settle a claim or satisfy a liability.

It should be no surprise then that when there is a dispute between two or more parties regarding value, the same valuation techniques and skills are necessary to resolve the dispute. Attorneys, accountants and business owners often rely on independent, third-party valuation experts to assist in the resolution of disputes or potential conflict situations.

Some of the typical situations in which valuation experts are utilized include fair value financial reporting (GAAP accounting), bankruptcy, income tax reporting, property tax appeals, estate and gift tax planning and reporting, dissenting shareholder disputes, corporate transactions and disputes, divorce litigation, shareholder disputes or economic damages analysis as well as many other business and legal purposes.
