Information

A pre-recorded streaming VIDEO replay of the March 2016 webcast, Business Valuation Basics for Family Lawyers.


Topics covered include:

  • What is a “business” that is subject to property division?
  • When is a business valuation required?
  • Selecting a Business Valuator—business valuation expert credentials
  • Types of business valuations
  • Elements of a business valuation report

Family lawyers must be able to navigate the complexities of a business valuation of a closely held business for their property division clients. Failure to properly do so may result in malpractice liability. The property division of a closely held business can be riddled with traps hiding in the definition of “business,” discount rates, discounts, multiples, and double dipping. Manipulation of the variables can create very diverse values of a business, possibly resulting in a “non-equitable” property division.

This seminar will present a basic explanation of these complex issues and the elements of a business valuation so the family law practitioner may better advocate for his or her client.
