Why You Should Attend:

In "Working With Financial Experts" BVR's Online Symposium on Litigation and Economic Damages begins with insights from perhaps the most important perspective for anyone functioning as a financial expert in court: the attorney. Join attorneys Tim Devlin and William Marsden as they examine and explain the key considerations lawyers use when selecting a financial expert, working with a financial expert, or facing off against a financial expert in court.

As Devlin and Marsden explain in The Comprehensive Guide to Lost Profits for Experts and Attorneys, "the most effective damage expert is one who is actively engaged through all phases of the case." Join them on September 13 to more thoroughly engage yourself in the processes that will find you in damages cases in the future.
