BATTLE OF THE EXPERT 2017,” a Webinar Series, Premiering September 28th, 2pm CST through West LegalEdcenter

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 an asset. The same techniques are used to determine the price they are 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.

The first episode of the series, “VALUATION FIGHTS IN LITIGATION: BATTLE OF THE EXPERT 2017,” airs on September 28th at 2pm CST (Register Here) and features moderator Gary Frantzen of Alvarez & Marsal Valuation Services. He is joined by Anne Vanderkamp of Baker Tilly, Andrew Dorchester of The Dorchester Group, Garth Tebay of Value Defined, and Hubert Klein of EisnerAmper.

A dispute regarding the value of a business or business interest, asset or liability can often lead to litigation. When do you need a valuation expert? An independent, third-party expert is not necessarily required during the negotiation process although it may be helpful. But once you are headed to litigation, an expert will be required. Are there credentials that are useful in identifying the appropriate expert? Are all credentialed experts the same or are there advantages to one over another? The process of selecting the right expert begins with identifying the issues in dispute. This Financial Poise webinar will help you by identifying and explaining key factors that you should consider in selecting an expert for your litigation circumstances.
