About This Program

BVR’s Case Law Update returns. Find out which recent opinions from state and federal courts have valuators talking, frowning, or puzzled by tuning in to a one-hour briefing with BVR’s Executive Legal Editor, Sylvia Golden, and valuation expert, James Alerding (Alerding Consulting). The presenters will discuss six decisions from various legal disciplines that affect how practitioners approach litigation. This round of noteworthy cases includes opinions that wrestle with issues such as double dipping, measuring compensation in case of expropriation of a business, and determining fair value in a misappropriation of funds case with scant financial information. But wait, there is more...
