How do you measure the lost profits? Must you demonstrate lost profits with certainty? Over what period do you measure the lost profits? If your business has not recovered fully, can you include estimated future lost profits?

This webinar series focuses on valuation. 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 second episode of the VALUATION FIGHTS IN LITIGATION: BATTLE OF THE EXPERT 2017 webinar series is Valuing Lost Profits for Litigation Purposes, airing on October 19th at 2pm CST (REGISTER HERE), and features host Gary Frantzen of Alvarez & Marsal Valuation Services. He is joined by Anne Vanderkamp of Baker Tilly, Lisa Vandesteeg of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer, and Leanne Gould of Aprio, LLP to discuss lost profits and presenting a damages theory in court.

A competitor, contractor or other third party has taken actions that have damaged your business in the form of lost profits. How do you measure the lost profits? Must you demonstrate lost profits with certainty? Over what period do you measure the lost profits? If your business has not recovered fully, can you include estimated future lost profits? These are all important questions in a lost profits case. This webinar addresses those questions and summarizes the different methods to measure lost profits, as well as some of the critical elements that must be considered in developing and presenting your damages theory in court.

The VALUATION FIGHTS IN LITIGATION: BATTLE OF THE EXPERT 2017 webinar series is sponsored by EisnerAmper.
