“One of the things I suggest to younger family lawyers is to make relationships with experts,” says Jay Fishman (Financial Research Associates) in a recent interview with Family Lawyer Magazine. Attorneys need a stable of valuation experts who have expertise in different areas, he says, and they want experts who are not just competent technically, but ones who can effectively explain things, especially to a trier of fact.

Fishman will co-present a session, Untangling the Web of Complex and Startup Businesses, at the AAML/BVR Divorce Conference—where valuation experts and attorneys will meet up over three days in Las Vegas (Sept. 18-20). The AAML is the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, so this is the perfect event to forge some relationships! Attendance is expected to be half experts and half attorneys.
