About This Program

In theory, valuation experts and attorneys share distinguished professions where documented case law and peer-reviewed methodology come together in perfect harmony. In reality, things get messy- particularly in divorce cases. Join matrimonial attorney Jennifer Rosenkrantz and valuation expert Pat Rafanelli for a discussion of several real-life scenarios regarding valuation issues in divorce cases and how those issues would be considered by attorneys and forensic experts. Hear fact patterns and get complete insight from both an attorney and a forensic accountant about what you should be considering. Get real with practical approaches to thorny issues from two front line experts.


  • Unreported income
    • How to handle as the neutral forensic
    • The attorney for the non-titled spouse
    • The attorney for the titled spouse
  • “Valuation” of the one-person corporation
    • Is there really a business value separate and apart from the spouse’s income?
  • Sale of a business interest during the litigation
    • What if the sale was for more than fair market value? 
    • What if the sale was for less than fair market value? 
    • Can a neutral forensic expert consider the sale if it occurred after the valuation date?
  • Issue of an employee having minimal (i.e.: less than 5%) interest in a real estate investment which provides him with distributions
    • Is there a value to this “business interest?

    Learning Objectives

    • Learn how to recognize and address complex issues in divorce engagements through real world examples
    • Learn how attorneys and forensic experts each address the same set of facts through their individual perspectives
    • Learn how to determine when or if a business valuation is necessary in a divorce case
